CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR AUDITING THE LESOTHO ELECTRICITY COMPANY (LEC) ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
The Lesotho Electricity and Water Authority (LEWA) is a multi-sector regulator mandated to regulate the Electricity Supply Industry (ESI ) and Urban Water and Sewerage Services (UWSS) where these services are not supplied on a competitive basis. The Authority’s major functions are issuing licences; setting tariffs and charges; setting and monitoring implementation of Quality of Service and Supply Standards (QoSSS) by the regulated entities; and resolving complaints and disputes related to the services.
- Background, Context and Objectives
One of the Authority’s functions is to monitor performance and compliance of Licensees. In pursuance of this, in its “Determination of LEC’s Tariff Application for 2020/21”, the Authority made a decision that LEC’s performance from the Financial Year 2020/21 will be monitored with a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). The KPIs agreed on by the two entities cover five performance areas of Financial, Customer Services, Technical, Safety, and Efficiency and Sustainability. The KPIs, in broad terms, measure the reliability of the company’s electricity supply to customers; safety of its employees; and the financial viability, efficiency and long-term sustainability of the company. The LEC annual performance-based bonus will be paid if the company reaches a set minimum performance composite index of the KPIs to be assessed and approved by the Authority. Thus LEC’s performance on the KPIs will be audited annually.
