THE privatisation of water has advanced a step further with the appointment of former Fiji resident Tony Fullman as the chief executive of the Water Authority of Fiji.
He has the task of helping 51 per cent of urban dwellers and 49 per cent of those living in rural areas have piped water supply.
According to a government statement, Mr Fullman has 20 years of experience in the New Zealand public sector in project management, technical skills and knowledge for continuous business improvements.
The Authority, according to a promulgation of its powers and functions by the President Ratu Josefa Iloilo, will treat and supply water and also have the legal right to power sources and the right to obtain water from sources for supply to the public.
It will also establish, operate and maintain systems for the provision of water and sewerage services and assist in the formulation and implementation of national policies or urban and rural land use planning relating to the use and control of water bodies and resources.
The authority also has the power to enforce and review policies, procedures, standards and codes of practice.
Mr Fullman has a double Masters degree in Public Management and Information Management and a post graduate Diploma of Business Administration from Victoria University of Wellington.
