The Regulators’ Alliance for Progressing Infrastructure Development (RAPID) was set up in 2019. It is a partnership made up of three water regulators – Ofwat, the Environment Agency (EA) and the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI). In line with government best practice, within RAPID we are committed to transparency and evaluating our work to ensure we deliver value for money. Instilling a culture of evaluation also helps us evolve our approach and improve the outcomes we achieve. Whilst we are monitoring the effectiveness of RAPID's delivery, our success is dependent on our influence and the support of others – hence our focus on collaboration. Our evaluation techniques include surveying our collaborators and stakeholders, as well as understanding what lessons have been learnt through the gated process. Where appropriate, we have developed our evaluation using external support to strengthen it through the life of our programme. We published our Forward Programme 2022-23 which detailed our delivery priorities for 2022-23 within the longer-term programme. This review will look at what we have achieved in terms of those priorities and provide examples where appropriate.
