Africa/Middle East: Nigeria

NARUC Utility Rate School

Date: May 10-14, 2010
Location: San Diego, California

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC arranged for three senior Nigerian Electicity Regulatory Commission (NERC) staff to attend the NARUC Utility Rate School to learn about the financial aspects of rate making. As NERC was undertaking a review of its Multi-Year Tariff Order (MYTO), it was important for its staff to become familiar with such principles as a Uniform System of Accounts given the country’s move from a government-owned and operated utility to a market-based system. As such, NERC will need all utilities under its jurisdiction to have a standardized set of accounting classifications.
