The Antigua Public Utilities Authority is a tripartite government statutory agency set up under the Public Utilities Act No. 10 of 1973 (and subsequently as amended) to ensure that consumers receive the best possible value in Telecommunications (including mobile & internet), Electricity and Water services. Policy formulation and introduction of legislation as required to successfully fulfill APUA’s mission comes from the Minister with responsibility for Public Utilities, who is a member of the Cabinet of Antigua & Barbuda. The day-to-day operation of the organization is vested by the General Manager, who is assisted by a Management Team. Oversight is provided by the Board of Commissioners also appointed by Cabinet.
