Prescribed Bodies Inquiries
The Government may require the Regulator to undertake a prescribed bodies inquiry under Part 4 of the Economic Regulator Act 2009.
These inquiries relate to the pricing policies of a prescribed body (a prescribed body means an agency, Government Business Enterprise, statutory authority, State owned company or Local Government body).
In December 2017 the Treasurer issued Terms of Reference under the Economic Regulator Act for a Prescribed Body Inquiry to be conducted. The Terms of Reference required the Regulator to investigate and report on the pricing of TasNetworks' wholesale IT Infrastructure as a Service Activities in relation to the Government's Networking Tasmania III panel.
The Regulator's Final Report was provided to the Treasurer on 30 April 2018.
