The African Development Bank through the KOAFEC Trust Fund has funded the Supply, Installation and Deployment of a Database Management System (DBMS) and Training of Staff of the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) of Ghana on its usage. The project ‘Effective Power Sector Regulations through Improved Technology in Ghana’ is intended to build a secure, mission-critical and reliable multi-tier Database Management System, with role-based access, providing front ends for processing, reporting and managing PURC operations and functions.

The overall objective of the project is to support the establishment of a centralized DBMS for the PURC to enable the Commission to improve their regulatory functions by improving their ability to collect, analyse and monitor data for utility regulations. The execution of this initiative forms part of the Bank’s efforts to support countries with bespoke regulatory solutions to address regulatory bottlenecks.

PURC DBMS launch

The launch of the DBMS is to present key progress in the implementation of the DBMS and to demonstrate the efficacy of the system to internal and external audiences. In the context of the COVID 19 situation, leveraging a robust regulation is even more critical for improving governance in the utility sector. This project aims to align the work of the PURC with the growing need for improved ICT in the regulation of the utility sector.
