CP183  Maximising Benefits from PR04 Timetable Investment Planning
The UK Regulator, Office of Water Service (Ofwat) has presented expectations for delivering a successful periodic review (PR04) submission. These highlight the critical success factors, but do not elaborate on how they can be achieved. The preference for "bottom-up" and quantitative data, whilst ensuring concise and transparent business plans, puts considerable strain on Asset Managers. To help address these issues, this project will deliver a practical / timely solution for maximising and achieving Ofwat's success factors.

This will be delivered through key workshop events. Aimed at asset management decision makers, these will provide a forum and focus for optimising submissions by:

  • Fully understanding the underlying objectives of Ofwat requirements
  • Recognising strengths / weaknesses in current draft submissions
  • Benchmarking and adopting best practise approaches for achieving success
  • Smarter use of existing data (eg. AMP 3 data)
  • Pragmatic use of risk assessment tools.

Benefits to Clients

  • Improved quality / acceptability of PR04 final business plan submissions
  • Clear understanding of capital maintenance success factors to facilitate the submissions
  • Confidence in approach / methodologies on moving from "draft" to "final" business plans
  • Powerful insights on how best to leverage existing data and quantify budget needs.
