6 6 INTRODUCTION The National Energy Regulator (NERSA), a Schedule 3A Public Finance Management Act, 1999 (Act No. 1 of 1999) Public Entity was established on 1 October 2005 in terms of the National Energy Regulator Act, 2004 (Act No. 40 of 2004) to regulate: o Electricity industry (Electricity Regulation Act, 2006 (Act No. 4 of 2006)) o Piped-Gas industry (Gas Act, 2001 (Act No. 48 of 2001)) o Petroleum Pipelines industry (Petroleum Pipelines Act, 2003 (Act No. 60 of 2003)) In executing its mandate NERSA endeavours to balance the interest of both licensed entities and end users/consumers

7 7 B. FRAMEWORK FOR STRATEGIC PLANS AND ANNUAL PERFORMANCE PLANS

8 8 FRAMEWORK FOR STRATEGIC PLANS AND ANNUAL PERFORMANCE PLANS (1) Published by National Treasury in August 2010 Applicable to all national and provincial departments, constitutional institutions and public entities in the development of their strategic plans Applicable from 2012/13 for Schedule 3A Public Entities NERSA is required to: o Produce and table a Strategic Plan with a five-year planning horizon; o Produce and table an Annual Performance Plan including forward projections for a further two years, with annual and performance targets, where appropriate; and o Identify a core set of indicators needed to monitor institutional performance.

9 9 FRAMEWORK FOR STRATEGIC PLANS AND ANNUAL PERFORMANCE PLANS (2) In line with the Framework NERSA published a Strategic Plan (2012/13 – 2016/17) According to the Framework a “Strategic Plan may be changed during the five-year period that it covers. However, such changes should be limited to revisions related to significant policy shifts or changes in the service-delivery environment” Upon revision it was found: o There were no significant policy shifts or changes; and o There were no significant gaps in the approved Strategic Plan.
