The Commission will make a new regulatory determination to apply to the South Australian Water Corporation (SA Water) from 1 July 2024 to 30 June 2028: SA Water Regulatory Determination 2024 (SAWRD24).
The first step in the Commission’s Regulatory Determination process is to establish the Framework and Approach that will apply to SAWRD24. The Framework and Approach will set out the intended outcomes, strategies, overall process, governance arrangements and timetable. It will also include a list of subjects and topics that will be dealt with in detail in subsequent Guidance Papers.
Current status is Initiate
The purpose of this consultation paper is to invite stakeholder feedback on key elements of the SA Water Regulatory Determination 2024 Framework and Approach.
Feedback received to date has identified three specific elements of the overall review timetable that require further consideration:
- the nature, scope and timing of SA Water’s draft Regulatory Business Plan
- the nature, scope and timing for involving customers in the review process, and
- the scope of issues to be dealt with in the Guidance Papers.
Importantly, while this paper presents options for consideration and comment, it does not represent the Commission’s final views or positions on matters raised.
Stakeholders are invited to discuss or provide submissions on this consultation paper by no later than Friday, 26 March 2021. The Commission welcomes discussions with stakeholders on any of the matters raised in this paper or on any related matters during the consultation period.
Following consideration of the issues raised in submissions, the Commission will release a Final Framework and Approach paper in May 2021. That paper will include the timeframe and key milestones for the SAWRD24 review process. It will also include further details on the scope of the initial set of Guidance Papers, to be released through to December 2021.
