 TCTA is a Special Purpose Vehicle
 Responds to directives/mandates from the Minister of Water and Environmental
Affairs to fund and implement bulk raw water infrastructure on behalf of DWA
 Board is appointed by Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs
 Established under the Water Act
 Schedule 2 Public Entity w.r.t. PFMA
 Limited recourse approach



No balance sheet
Break-even of revenue to costs over a specified period
Fully debt funded – no equity
Ring-fenced projects – tariffs related to a specific project – no cross-application of
revenue
 Non profit-taking organisation
 Recover actual costs – overhead and capex, no profit/loss or reserves
 Risk averse approach – risk is transferred to parties best suited to manage it
 Revenue stream terminates once debt is repaid on a project
 Tariffs are TCTA’s main source of revenue

Affordability and predictability to end-users
Uncomplicated annual tariff consultations – inflationary increases
 Water demand management incentive (pay on actual use)
 No cross subsidisation between projects – transparency of costs
 Compliance with Water Pricing Strategy

 Tariff categories for off-budget schemes:
 Capital Unit Charges (to repay debt)
 Bulk Operating and Royalties Charge (to repay royalties and bulk O&M)
 Water Use Charges (statutory charges as per pricing strategy)
 Operations and Maintenance Charges (State schemes portion)
 Betterment and Refurbishment Charges (if applicable)

 TCTA recovers the following tariffs:
 Raw water tariff as capital unit charge to repay debt
 Bulk Operating and Royalties charge to cover royalties and bulk O&M
 Full cost recovery from water sold to end-users or take-or-pay where required
 Based on water sold out of system and not on water delivered into the system
from the specific project
 supports water demand management initiatives
 reduces demand risk
 Constant tariff in real terms which increases with:
 CPI annually
 Triggers as per the Income Agreement
 Repayment of debt within reasonable period (eg 20 years)
 Affordable structure to the end-user
 Tariff setting takes account of tariff, funding and risk management principles in
combined approach

 National Water Pricing Strategy
 Administered prices – inflation targeting
 Stakeholder consultation outcomes
 Affordability to end-users
 phasing-in of large adjustments
 allowance for capitalisation of interest in early years

affordability
Considerations to support end user
affordability:
Considerations to support debt
management:
• Under recovering in early years
•+20 year repayment period
• End-user pays on actual use if
bankable
• Peak of debt in relation to value of
asset (limit interest capitalisation)
• Constant tariff in real terms approach
– CPI targeting
• Risk transfer to end-user – trigger
adjustments if input assumptions
change
• Phasing-in of large tariff
adjustments over 2-3 years
• Take account of future
augmentation – future affordability
• No reserves built into tariffs
16
Debt
outstanding
• Actual cost transfer – TCTA not
profit taking
• Water sector debt profile – debt
overlap with future schemes
• Interest rates mostly fixed
• Utilisation of explicit Government
guarantees and impact on National
Treasury
Planning process
• Input data
Demand, system
yield, economic
fundamentals,
cost and timing of
future augmentation

• Long-term
projections
DWA compiles longterm demand
projections based on
coordinated approach
with DWA – various
departments
involved, Water
Boards’ Planning and
Budgeting
departments, Large
industrial users,
Muni’s etc.

 The annual audits will include, inter alia,
 Correct capture of assumptions, i.e.:
 General input assumptions; demand projections, CPI, real interest rates, admin
costs, funding requirements and LT cost plans;
 Funding input; calcs relating to loans, bonds, interest, fees, capital requirements,
capi, CPI uplift on CPI-linked instruments;
 Loans on models correspond with loan agreements
 Confirm the accuracy of the following outputs:
 Net debt curve
 Tariff
 Gross borrowings
 Graphs, etc.
19
 Assess the accuracy of the financial models:
 Initial audits only – review the logic and accuracy of computations;
 For subsequent audits – map out changes in logic and construction of the model
from the previous audited version, and review where changes have been
detected;
 Deliver an initial report of findings and recommendations relating to the accuracy,
integrity, highlighting issue for TCTA’s attention;
 Review changes made by TCTA following initial report;
 Deliver final opinion letter (report) by the 15th of September, annually;
