We invite stakeholders to comment on our proposals in respect of direct procurement for customers within PR19 final determinations to include (i) a bespoke uncertainty mechanism and (ii) an outcome delivery incentive. We will
consider the comments we receive and set out our final decisions when we publish the PR19 final determinations on 11 December 2019.
How to respond
We are keen to hear your views on the discussion points raised and whether you think there are any other considerations we should take into account.
Please send your responses to [email protected] by Friday 15th November 2019.
You can also submit your response by post to:
Centre City Tower
7 Hill Street
Birmingham B5 4UA
Please be advised we may publish all the written responses to this consultation on our website at www.ofwat.gov.uk , alongside our final decision. If we do publish and if you believe that any of the information in your response should not be disclosed (for example, because you consider it to be commercially sensitive), you should identify that information and explain why. We expect reasons that are specific to the information concerned. We will take such explanations into account but we cannot give an assurance that information included in responses will not be disclosed.
An automatic confidentiality disclaimer generated by your IT system will not, of itself, be regarded as binding on Ofwat. At a minimum, we would expect to publish the name of all organisations that provide a written response, even where there are legitimate reasons why the contents of those written responses remain confidential.
