Tariff Setting Methodology For Water Supply And Sewerage Services In BIH

The main objective of this document is to develop draft tariff setting methodology for water supply and sewage services in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The methodology defines such tariffs so as to enable recovery of all costs, including operating and investment maintenance costs, as well as capital investments costs, if so decided. This methodology also includes detailed guidelines for developing a business plan containing the selected key performance indicators as well as instructions for their calculating. Business plan includes detailed plans for improving financial and operating performance, while the methodology also provides guidelines for this purpose. Key performance indicators selected in one business period have to be projected for the entire planning period, as well as values achieved in the previous period compared with the earlier projected ones, and clearly justified why these values are not the same if there is a difference between them. At the same time, the proposed draft methodology does not require modifications of the respective legally regulated competencies.

Study on the best administrative positioning of the Regulatory Body in the process of tariff setting of communal affairs of water supply and wastewater collection and treatment services

This document proposes mechanisms to setup a new regualtory framework for water services in BiH. The introduction of a new regulatory framework for tariff setting of services into the legislation should clearly define both obligations and responsibilities of all participants in the performance of communal services: lawmaker, local self-governance unit as the most responsible factor in provision of high-quality and efficient performance of communal services, public utilities and other companies –communal services providers and communal services beneficiaries – households and legal entities. After the necessary amendments to the utilities laws, which will regulate the establishment of a new regulatory framework for tariff setting of services, are adopted there must be a consistent implementation of laws followed by appropriate administrative and expert supervision by relevant administration bodies (Entities, Cantons, local self-governance units).
