|CWR Presents : REGULATON OF THE WATER, GAS AND ELECTRICITY INDUSTRIES IN W.A
Regulation of the utility industries is relatively new in Western Australia. The Economic Regulation Authority was established to licence, monitor and set customer protection standards across the utility industries, particularly water, gas and electricity.
In addition, the Authority determines arrangements for access to key gas, electricity and rail assets in Western Australia.
The presentation will cover the work of the Authority with particular emphasis on the licensing, monitoring and customer protection functions of the Authority, how they operate and opportunities for the private sector in these industries.
There will be a particular focus on the Water Sector.
Paul has had 25 years experience at Senior and Senior Executive levels in the Public Sector with extensive experience in :
* the development of high level government policy;
* the negotiation of State/Commonwealth Agreements;
* advice to senior levels of government;
* public administration and regulation.
He was responsible for major State wide reforms in purchasing and contracting of services for Government in the human services industry involving over 600 contracts totalling $42m.
He was previously Executive Director of the Office of Water Regulation in Western Australia, responsible for the establishment of a state wide licensing regime for Water Service Providers and reported to Government on the operations and performance of the water industry.
Paul is currently Executive Director of the Economic Regulation Authority.
The Authority was established in 2004 as an independent entity to regulate the Water, Gas, Electricity and Rail industries in Western Australia. Its functions include licensing, monitoring and setting customer protection standards of utility service providers as well as determining access arrangements to infrastructure in the electricity, gas and rail industries. In addition to these roles the Authority can be requested to provide independent advice to Government.
