Summary:

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC will provide technical assistance through a Consultant to develop regulatory accounting and utility financial reporting forms and procedures and propose recommendations to respective regulatory authorities from three separate countries: Kazakhstan’s Committee for Regulation of Natural Monopolies (CRNM), Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Finance (MoF) and Ministry of Energy (MoE), and the Kyrgyz Republic’s State Agency for Regulation of the Fuel and Energy Sector (SARFES), which is part of the Ministry of Energy and Industry (MoEI).

The purpose of this technical assistance, conducted through separate bilateral engagements with Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and the Kyrgyz Republic, is to develop tailored guidelines for accounting procedures for utilities and standard filing requirements (forms and instructions) for each country. This will equip regulators and ministry representatives in these countries with the tools to gather the information necessary to gain a clearer picture of the costs of service and better design and implement cost-reflective tariffs.
