On 31 October 2017, Directlink submitted to the AER a request to develop a replacement Framework and Approach (F&A) to apply to its next distribution determination process for the 2020-25 regulatory control period.
The preliminary framework and approach paper for Directlink was published on 22 March 2018 and invited written submissions. No submissions were received. The final framework and approach paper, largely reflecting the preliminary F&A, was published on 30 July 2018.
Directlink's regulatory proposal is due for submission by 31 January 2019.
