The UK water sector investment rollercoaster - turning recommendations into practice!

Date: 13th July 2012

Location: The Rose Bowl, Leeds

Time: 10am – 1.30pm (registration & coffee from 9.30am)

Ofwat and Infrastructure UK are currently finalising a joint report which will make a series of recommendations on how the cyclical nature of the investment in the UK water sector can be reduced, particularly in respect of its impact on the supply chain.  This report is currently scheduled for publication on 16th June,

At this seminar Ofwat and IUK will be presenting the options considered by the report.  Following the presentations there will be three parallel workshops at which Ofwat and IUK will be looking for feedback on these options and the best ways to implement them. (Unfortunately they will not be able to refer to specific recommendations prior to publication of the report.)

The workshop groups will represent: 1. The Ofwat & water company interface;  2. The water company & tier 1 supplier interface;  3. The tier 1 & supply chain interface.

A joint session will then explore and summarise each of the workshop outputs.  A light buffet lunch will follow at 1.00pm.
