MUNICIPAL TARIFF MODELING
Our mission is to help municipalities towards financial sustainability. When is a municipality financially sustainable? Only when it fully recovers its costs through revenue, and when sufficient cash is available to fund liabilities, operations and investments in infrastructure and other assets. IPM’s new tariff model web application helps municipalities to determine cost reflective tariffs for their different services to citizens. Our long-term financial model already helps municipalities to plan for this at an aggregate level. This new application helps to calculate tariffs by customer categories, and by block / level of usage for each service. It also calculates property tariffs. Cost reflective tariffs will help to fund the municipality towards financial sustainability, as planned for in their long-term financial modeling and plan.
