“Ivie Ehanmo is an excellent problem solver and communicator who performed and recorded outstanding deliverables with the competence and professionalism most needed at the Sierra Leone Electricity and Water Regulatory Commission where I was the first substantive holder of the position of Director-General of the Commission.
She was among the consultants engaged as part of the Threshold Programme for Sierra Leone between the government of Sierra Leone and the Millennium Challenge Corporation of the United States, to assist with the Regulatory Strengthening and Tariff Development Support Project which amongst other facets involved a diagnostic review and strategic implementation of the Sierra Leone Electricity and Water Regulatory Commission Act, 2011. Ivie was engaged to critically support the development of the instruments for electricity and water regulation, including licensing procedures/agreements for service providers including new entrants, economic regulation policies and procedures, technical regulation, service quality regulation, stakeholder engagements, etc.
Working closely with Ivie, I found her to be very efficient and always ready to go the extra mile, exceeding the expectations of her terms of reference for the attainment of excellent service delivery. I found her to be an intelligent, committed, and inquisitive individual, and an invaluable asset to the Commission. Today, the fact that the Commission can function despite some lingering external challenges is due primarily to the assistance rendered by Ivie and her team and we shall always be grateful to them. I have returned to private legal practice, with a focus on energy, and the ideas I inherited from her continue to be very helpful in my new life.
I am proud to be affiliated with Electricity Lawyer and the entire team of experts”.
