Review of Cost-Benefit Analysis and Benefit Valuation

Price: £14  

This report makes recommendations on the future application of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and benefits valuation for water companies and their regualtors. The report documents an independent review by a multi-disciplinary team of experienced consultants and leading academic experts of the use and application of CBA and benefits valuation in investment planning and decision making at the 2009 Periodic Review (PR09). An analytical review and quantitative analysis of Business Plans was undertaken together with a substantial consultation and engagement process with all water sector stakeholders. The findings from the research help address four key questions. 1) What happened at PR09? 2) What can be learnt from the PR09 experience? 3) What is the future role for CBA in business planning in the water industry? 4) How can the future role for CBA be developed? In addition to a synthesis of the findings and recommendations, the study also produced a Practitioners Guide for asset planning managers and others in water companies to assist them in the delivery of benefit valuation and CBA for future price setting exercises.
