TMG selected to assist Costa Rica in estimating the X productivity factor


TMG has been selected to support the Costa Rican Telecommunications Superintendence (SUTEL) in estimating the X productivity factor, typically used in price control regimes.  The project involves 1) an international benchmark of the methodology to calculate the X factor; 2) an analysis of the advantages and/or disadvantages of the different methodologies studied in the benchmark analysis; 3) the development of recommendations concerning how the productivity factor should be calculated for Costa Rican telecommunications; and 4) estimation of the X productivity factor. The project is slated to run through the end of January of 2017.
