PURC Advanced International Practices Program: Measuring Telecom Provider Costs
August 7 - 10, 2011
Gainesville, Florida USA
PURC developed the PURC Advanced International Practices Program in consultation with faculty and alumni of the PURC/World Bank International Training Program on Utility Regulation and Strategy. The 2011 courses in this new program provided experienced utility professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the technical matters of infrastructure policy.
Ten program participants, representing 7 different nations, developed the skills necessary to address today’s complex infrastructure issues. Using case studies and presentations by PURC faculty and infrastructure experts, the courses in this program emphasized practical lessons and new techniques for addressing the most pressing pricing, market, and process issues.
After completing this course, participants were able to:
- Design cost models to address specific questions
- Identify strengths and flaws in cost models
- Assess key assumptions and formulas
- Identify efficient and affordable prices
- Defend your cost model
