Every month AEMO publishes the numbers of retail transfers registered in the MSATS system. The Interpretation document has been updated to reflect the inclusion of SMALL NMI Class and commencement of FRC in Queensland, effective from 1 July 2007.
The IEC and RMEC endorsed the Business Process and Data Reference Group (PDRG) proposal to provide a new statistical report that rolls statistics up to corporate company level (rather than at a Participant ID), with the flexibility to allow participants to request additional Participant IDs be included and be added to an existing company for reporting purposes.
A new consumer transfer statistic is used for transfer data published on the website from 1 June 2009 (i.e. they are included in the May 2009 report. Note that in this report, the historical values have been recalculated from 1 July 2007 using the new statistic). For the new statistic, a transfer is defined as a change in Financially Responsible Market Participant (FRMP) where the previous FRMP belongs to a different company or corporation (if participants have requested additional participant IDs across different Company IDs be grouped together). Therefore transfers between different Participant IDs of the same organisation are not measured (included).
Please note that as a result:
the new statistic may not reflect all consumer transactions taking place in MSATS
the definition of Company ID and Participant ID may still not completely reflect the accurate ownership structure due to different ACNs used by an organisation.
The numbers of transferred consumers reported in these statistics represent the number of completed change requests in MSATS for a change of retailer or to create a new second tier connection point.
The old statistics produced do not necessarily indicate a churn from one company to another as they are dependent on the number of participant ids that a company has in MSATS.
Some of these old statistics produced do include transfers between participants ids that are owned by the same company.
