The main problem of the Siberian Synchrotron and Terahertz Radiation Center (SSTRC) is absence of the modern light source. In spite of intensive exploring of SR beams and SR analytic techniques of the SSTRC by a large number of user groups, the SR parameters of the currently used beams strongly restrict capability of the used techniques. Budker INP has rich experience and technologies for developing and building complex accelerator facilities. Moreover, the unique scientific environment of the SSTRC provides a high demand for modern light source in the Novosibirsk Scientific Center only. Thus, the creation of the new light source is highly relevant issue. After analysis of the user requirements and modern accelerator approaches for design of magnetic lattice for high brightness light source the Budker team proposed an option of the magnetic structure of a new light source for Novosibirsk Scientific Center. The project was named “SKIF”. Current report describes the main parameters for the proposed light source as well as common design of the accelerator complex, magnetic structure of the main ring and buster accelerator. The preliminary scedule and systems cost analysis are included.
