On Feb. 29, D'Arcy brought Raman Raj, the DWP's chief operating officer, who runs the municipal utility when Nahai is out of town, and two dozen other civic leaders to union headquarters to discuss the plan.

Raman Raj, our Chief Operating Officer, is moving on from the Department to return to the private sector.
Please join me in wishing Raman well in the next stage of his career. Effective today, any pending matters that would have required his attention should be forwarded to the office of the General Manager. Nichols unceremoniously announced the departure of chief operating officer Raman Raj to the staff Friday afternoon, the usual day for staff firings -- a point NIchols stressed with his pointed reference to "any pending matters" should be forwarded to his office. Raj was a key figure in the rate hikes fiasco last spring, gaining enormous authority during the chaos in management in recent years, and close ally of IBEW union boss Brian D'Arcy. Raj was hired by David Freeman during his first unfortunate reign as DWP general manager but fired not long after Freeman was dismissed. As Mayor Villaraigosa's deputy mayor for energy and the environment, Freeman forced General Manager David Nahai to rehire Raj in May 3008. The Story of Raman Raj and Brian D'Arcy: The Villains Who Wrecked the DWP

Insiders with knowledge of what happened say a San Diego therapist was paid nearly $50,000 in 2009 to mediate an intense battle between H. David Nahai and Raman Raj, the agency's top two leaders.
The L.A. Department of Water and Power brought a psychologist in to calm an intense battle between then-General Manager H. David Nahai, pictured, and Raman Raj, the No. 2 executive. (Glenn Koenig, Los Angeles Times / August 19, 2009) But several sources said the psychologist found an intense battle between the two men attempting to carry out Villaraigosa's policies: then-General Manager H. David Nahai and Raman Raj, the No. 2 executive. Nahai "was just a chronic complainer about [Raj]. Nahai and Raj became the top two executives at the utility in November 2007. Raj had worked as a DWP executive starting in 1999, but left two years later after the administration of then-Mayor Richard Riordan commissioned a report that recommended his ouster. The report concluded that Raj had given Brian D'Arcy, the head of the DWP employee union, "too much influence in the management" of the utility and said Raj could not be trusted to "act in the department's interest" if they conflicted with his own. The report concluded that Raj had given Brian D'Arcy, the head of the DWP employee union, "too much influence in the management" of the utility and said Raj could not be trusted to "act in the department's interest" if they conflicted with his own. Villaraigosa's office allowed Raj to return in 2007 with more authority: Department heads reported directly to him. By then, Nahai had tried without success to persuade Villaraigosa's office to let him reassign Raj entirely, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

City Controller Wendy Greuel agreed to conduct "an evaluation of the process and internal controls over the DWP's Purchasing Card program" in response to a request by DWP Chief Operating Officer Raman Raj.

DWP Chief Operating Officer Raman Raj said the decision to delay the transfer of the $73 million - the final payment on a $220 million transfer to the city's general fund - involved a variety of factors.
During questioning by Perry and Councilman Tony Cardenas, Raj would not identify a single individual who tied the ECAF rate to the transfer. However, Raj said there was no one conversation over the issue and it took place over a series of weeks involving the DWP management and its advisors. Cardenas said he was not looking for a single person to blame.
