Roundtable 2022: Charting the AUC’s progress on regulatory burden reduction


The AUC held its first regulatory burden roundtable with key stakeholders in October 2019. The discussions were insightful and productive and led to material changes to the AUC’s regulatory processes. The AUC will build on this experience by hosting a follow up roundtable on March 10, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. to gather additional insights from stakeholders regarding key efficiency measures and regulatory processes.

While transformation of the AUC’s processes is ongoing, the AUC demonstrated marked improvements in certain areas that were identified in the feedback received from stakeholders. For example, full-cycle proceeding time for rates applications has decreased significantly and streamlined processes have been adopted to deal with many routine applications, resulting in less regulatory burden for participants. These improvements translate into greater certainty for stakeholders and promote prospective ratemaking.

In this roundtable, the AUC is seeking stakeholder feedback on the following efficiency initiatives:

  • Assertive case management
  • Performance metrics
  • Mediated settlements

Additional background on these initiatives as well as questions for discussion are set out in the list of discussion items included found on this stakeholder engagement page. To promote discussion, stakeholders will have an opportunity to file submissions regarding assertive case management, performance metrics and mediated settlements. All submissions should be filed by March 2, 2022.

To participate in the virtual roundtable email Leslie Diebolt at leslie.diebolt@auc.ab.ca by February 25, 2022, including your name and the organization you represent. The AUC will then forward you an invite to the session.
