BERCThe Bihar Electricity Regulatory Commission (BERC) has decided to engage a consultant for providing consultancy services to the BERC for analysing and determining annual revenue requirement (ARR) and tariff by the Bihar State Electricity Board (BSEB) or its successor control board for a period of three years starting from financial year 2013-14.

 Four major bidder firms, -- ABPS Infrastructural Private Limited, Mumbai, PricewaterHouseCoopers Private Limited, Gurgaon, Medhraj Techno Concept Private Limited, New Delhi, and Meghraj Capital Advisory Private Limited, Mumbai - have already sought certain clarifications from the BERC, which has determined the ARR and tariff on year-to-year basis since 2006-07. The BERC has sent its clarifications to the queries made by the bidding firms.

In case the BSEB is reorganized, the ARR would be analysed and the tariff would be determined separately for each company to look into generation, transmission and distribution based on multiyear tariff (MYT) principle for a control period of three years.

The consultant will determine voltage-wise cost of supply, taking into account the cost of power purchased and voltage loss level. It would also determine the subsidy for different categories of consumers as per the policy of the state government, said an official.

Describing the scope of work for the consultant, an official said it would also verify energy audit results to determine the loss level in different areas/localities and scrutinize and analyse the data used in the tariff petition by the BSEB or its successor entities. This would include verification of the normative consumption of electricity by agricultural consumers and Kutir Jyoti consumers in rural areas as proposed by the BSEB or its entities.

The consultant will also assist the BERC in detailed analysis of the tariff petitions and evaluation of ARR determination and tariff setting on MYT principle in accordance with the BERC (terms and condition for determination of tariff) Regulations, 2007.

The evaluation of technical bid will be done by an evaluation committee constituted by the BERC, taking into account of the criteria fixed by the commission. Each criterion would be marked on a scale of 1 to 100 and the marks for each criterion would be weighted and added to arrive at an average technical score, said an official. The last date for the bidders to submit their proposals is July 26.
