ElectraLink Appoints Wilcock Consultants as the new SPAA Metering Agent AuditorNovember 3, 2017
ElectraLink is pleased to announce that Wilcock Consultants Ltd has been successfully appointed as the SPAA Auditor for the AMI and MAM services as of 1 January 2018 and ElectraLink have been appointed to support the delivery of this service. This followed a one year competitive procurement process. This represents another successful procurement, mobilisation and contract management project delivered by ElectraLink on behalf of the industry.
ElectraLink manages the Approved Meter Installer (AMI) and Meter Asset Manager (MAM) Code of Practices as part of its secretarial services provided to SPAA Ltd. These codes of practices set out the standards that must be followed for any company wishing to install or service a meter, including audit provisions. In 2016, ElectraLink initiated and managed a dedicated project to tender and appoint an auditor for the assessment and registration of both services. This required extensive stakeholder engagement, tender assessments, evaluations and project management resulting in a contract award.
The metering agent audits follow a three year cycle to provide assurance that processes and procedures are in place to comply with all relevant aspects of Code of Practice documents. Further information on the AMI and MAM audit process can be found on the SPAA Website or by directing your query to ElectraLink via the SPAA Helpdesk.
