Job Description And Duties

The Communications and Water Policy (CWP) Branch within the Public Advocates Office is seeking a Public Utilities Regulatory Analyst II-III to join its Customer Programs team.

Under the general direction from the Program and Project Supervisor, the analyst will participate in several proceedings and programs related to the communications industry. The analyst will conduct technical, analytical, and research to make evidence-based recommendations related to communications services, write comments on utility applications and Commission rulings, deliver presentations to staff and senior decision makers, testify at hearings, and represent the Public Advocates Office in various forums.

You will be part of project teams conducting research and analysis to support the Public Advocates Office policy development on communications services to protect California customers, including people with disabilities, low-income households and other disadvantaged and marginalized communities to advance social justice.

As the Commission continues to address access to essential communications services and other utility services, the analyst may be assigned work in other areas and branches, as needed.

The Customer Programs Section is currently working on a range of topics, including:

  • Developing customer protections on communication services for people with disabilities, people who are incarcerated, low-income households and other disadvantaged and marginalized communities to advance social justice.
  • Developing policy recommendations to close the digital divide and ensure safe and reliable phone and broadband services for all Californians.
  • Participating in General Rate Cases (GRC) for Small Rural Telephone Companies to ensure customer protections of phone and broadband services in rural areas, developing just and reasonable rates for customers.
  • Developing policy recommendations to achieve affordable broadband services, particularly for low-income customers in rural areas and increase broadband adoption.

    Carrying out these functions includes, but is not limited to, the following:

    • Developing and applying standard solutions, approaches and methodologies.
    • Collecting, synthesizing, modeling, and analyzing data (quantitative and qualitative).
    • Using spreadsheets and other quantitative tools.
    • Developing evidence-based recommendations.
    • Present research, analysis, findings, and recommendations orally and in writing.
    • Write high-quality protests, testimony, and comments related to general rate cases, other proceedings (e.g., complaints, applications, investigations, rulemakings, workshops, and committee meetings), advice letters and other utility filings.
    • Attend and represent the Public Advocates Office at intra-agency and inter-agency conferences, workshops, and public meetings concerning issues of utility rates and service, proposed new and federal regulations, public-purpose programs, and other related issues.
    • Testify in evidential hearings.
