Ofwat today published its initial assessment of company business plans at PR19. Three companies were awarded ‘fast track’ status: Severn Trent Water, South West Water and United Utilities. Companies have until April 1st to respond to the IAP and Economic Insight is advising a number of firms on their regulatory strategy.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has commissioned Economic Insight to undertake a detailed analysis of the labour market for hospitality and tourism. Our aim is to help DCMS develop a ‘map’ of skills requirements and the current labour supply conditions, with a view of better understanding existing “gaps” and the potential barriers to address them.
The Department for International Trade has hired Economic Insight to develop a monitoring and evaluation framework to help assess the effectiveness of its foreign direct investment (FDI) support policies. The uncertainty currently facing the UK economy means that understanding which policies most effectively support FDI is crucial and we look forward to advising DIT on this strategically vital subject.
