Making evidence-based decisions to maximize value for money is a top priority in today’s world, where there are ever increasing demands on limited resources. To this end, there is a growing interest in learning lessons from infrastructure interventions and applying them to future policies and investments.
Our expert team can support these ambitions by identifying the impact of a policy or specific project using an appropriate mix of primary and secondary data sources. Where a formal evaluation is required, we deploy an experimental or quasi-experimental design and statistical modeling techniques to isolate the impact of the intervention from background trends.
We are recognized leaders and innovators in this field, able to combine knowledge of official guidance, such as Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA), with technical expertise and a willingness to innovate. Our economics practice provides a series of analytical tools and techniques to support policy decision-making, including evaluating benefits and costs of projects and programs, quantitative risk assessment, value for money assessments to guide investment choice, and assessment of wider economic benefits on labor and firm productivity.
Some of the specific areas where we can provide world-leading expertise include examining the impacts of transportation investments on economic performance and transportation demand management. We implement a complete array of tools and techniques from economics to assess impacts, including input-output models, wider economic benefits, and fiscal taxation impact assessments.
