We published a decision-making and economic framework consultation paper in May 2012 to seek industry and consumer feedback on our proposed decision-making and economic framework for distribution pricing. The purpose of developing an economic framework for distribution pricing is to establish a framework for ensuring efficient allocation in distribution pricing, and to align with our approach for transmission pricing.

After considering the 16 submissions and three cross-submissions to the May 2012 consultation paper, we decided to confirm the decision-making and economic framework.

We published a summary of submissions and a decisions and reasons paper outlining its decision to confirm the decision-making and economic framework for distribution pricing.
