Abstract:

The standard services for the business are as follows, but not limited to:

• Investment planning – working with the internal team to provide input values for inclusion into the Service Measure Framework / Cost & Benefit process; to provide efficiency benchmarking of internally generated values; any output will need to be operated and maintained by Wessex Water resources

• Unit Cost Database (UCD) – working with the internal team to support the production of a Wessex Water UCD for new asset models; asset replacement and refurbishment models; non-asset solution models; collection of relevant data for use with the Water Research Council's TR61 cost modelling software

• Embodied, Operational and RENO Operational Carbon Accounting – working with the internal team to support the production of Embodied Carbon, Operational and RENO OPEX Carbon values to help meet our PR24 and OFWAT reporting requirements and our Net Zero Carbon by 2030 commitment

• Capital Allowances and Tax Depreciation – looking at the annual capital expenditure incurred by the Company, provide ongoing support in preparing all relevant underlying cost analysis culminating in a detailed split of the annual capital expenditure between the relevant tax categories for inclusion in the company’s corporation tax computation. In addition, you would provide adhoc advice on the capital allowance profile of a specific capital asset programme or related capital allowance support by combining cost segregation skills, building technology, tax and accountancy

• Economics – working with the internal team to develop a bespoke construction index that utilises Wessex Water Services Ltd data; to undertake an independent review on inflation, both historically and forecast, within the UK and South West Region of the UK; to provide support to create, review and critique the approach to setting efficient benchmarks using econometric models; to provide support to create, review and critique the real price effects & frontier shift / productivity efficiency modelling

• Provision of Resource - resource to supplement the Wessex Water teams – both at the Consultants home office and co-located at Wessex Water offices as necessary which may also include services as detailed above

In addition to the services described above, we require, as part of the day to day business, specific services that we must undertake as a regulated Utility company, and these can include;

• Project Performance benchmarking – with a large part of our programme being management/delivered internally it is even more important that we can demonstrate our efficiency both to the regulator and customers as part of our business plan and also day-to-day to our board. This may take a number of forms depending on the sub-programme being reviewed.

• Operating performance benchmarking – our efficiency is assessed based on capital and opex, so it is important that we can demonstrate our efficiency to the regulators and customers as part of our business plan and also day-to-day to our board. This may take a number of forms dependent on the area of opex cost being assessed.
