We are approving this Change Proposal.
This change is the first in a series of planned changes that are designed to reform the
Market Performance Framework (MPF), the mechanisms designed to monitor, govern,
and incentivise Trading Parties to deliver their obligations. CPM058a & CPW149a
establishes new governance arrangements for the MPF, including the creation of a new
Performance Assurance Committee (PAC) to replace the existing Market Performance
Committee (MPC), a more flexible approach to reviewing the MPF, and clarification
around MOSL being subject to external audits.
We are fully supportive of MPF reform and think that, designed appropriately, a
reformed MPF could result in more effective incentives being placed on Trading Parties
to drive improved market performance and better customer outcomes. We therefore
welcome that this change establishes a framework to facilitate MPF reform. We think
the governance arrangements proposed in this change are balanced and encourage a
focus on the customer interest in MPF decision-making, particularly because of the
composition of the PAC (which includes a significant independent/customer
representative membership) and its quoracy and voting rules. We think a more agile
approach to MPF reviews will enable them to be timely and targeted, improving their
effectiveness. This could result in a more effective MPF which would benefit
customers.
We recognise that much of the detail of MPF reform, including the PAC's remit, is still in
development, and that the outcome of this work could influence our assessment of the
appropriateness of the governance arrangements. If future MPF reform code changes
