South East Water is looking to appoint a suitable, qualified consultant to provide engagement services to understand what matters to our customers and community as a whole, to input into our 2023 Price Submission.

The customer engagement, as part of the Price Submission, is guided by the Essential Services Commission’s (the Commission) Pricing Framework and Approach, PREMO. The PREMO incentive approach gives water businesses strong incentives to deliver better value for customers, through focusing on five elements: performance, risk, engagement, management and outcomes. The Commission wants water businesses to undertake more effective customer engagement, to engage with customers earlier in the planning process and more deeply on matters that are significant to the services received by customers and to the prices that they pay. Price Submissions by water businesses must demonstrate the influence of this engagement on proposed services and prices and need to understand high level customer service priorities, explore trade-offs between keeping customers’ bills affordable while investing in the environment and service improvements and iteratively provide feedback on research to customers and test initial positions.

Continuing on from the engagement undertaken in 2016-17 as part of the 2018 Price Submission, South East Water wants to embark on a significant and broad reaching piece of customer engagement to understand what matters to them in terms of service outcomes and prices.
