Ofwat's fastest ever data request? (RD 21/08)

Ofwat letter (about 3 pages with three Microsoft Excel attachments) seeking:

The reason given for this emergency data collection is that Ofwat wishes to analyse “the potential for competition in water resources and treatment, and sewage treatment” as part of its contribution to other Government processes. But there is no sewage treatment counterpart to the detailed capacity and output data sought for water abstraction and treatment.

Companies are asked for these data by Monday 3 November 2008. This is the ninth working day after the stated date of Ofwat's request, and the eighth working day after the publication of the request on Ofwat's website.

For further information or advice please contact Franck Latrémolière.
