IPART has been asked by the Minister for Customer Service to evaluate the scope and effectiveness of the NSW competitive neutrality policies and processes.

Competitive neutrality policies aim to ensure that government businesses that compete with the private sector should not have a competitive advantage over other businesses solely due to their government ownership. They aim to ensure a level playing field between government business activities and their non-government competitors.

We are seeking feedback on our draft Terms of Reference to ensure that our review has an appropriate focus. Submissions will close on 17 December 2021. We may recommend the Minister make changes to the Terms of Reference as a result of the feedback we receive.

Once the Terms of Reference are finalised, we will also invite submissions from stakeholders on an Issues Paper and a Draft Report as we progress our review.

IPART will present a final report to the Treasurer and Minister for Customer Service within 12 months of receiving the final Terms of Reference.
