Allto Consulting Wins Ofwat Project

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been appointed by Ofwat, the economic regulator of the water industry in England and Wales, to provide advice and make evidence-based recommendations on the two new research methodologies that will replace the current Service Incentive Mechanism (SIM) research introduced in 2010.

Once the designs for these surveys have been finalised, we will test them by running a number of pilot studies so they can be implemented by Ofwat from 1 April 2020.

The results of these surveys feed in to the pricing, investment and service packages that the water companies are obliged to provide and which have to be agreed in advance by Ofwat.

Matt Counsell, who is leading the project for Allto said;

“We have completed many projects for Ofwat, and most of the water companies over the last 10 years, and we are pleased to be invited by Ofwat to bring our experience to the table for this important development”.
