What is the cost?

Central government, local authorities, and other public sector organisations need to know their unit costs.

In partnership with Dartington Social Research Unit, we are developing a software tool to estimate the unit costs of core services, programmes and projects in line with the Green Book.

We use a combination of econometric analysis, and workshops and interviews with the frontline to make the software tool work. Our unit costs strengthen financial appraisals, cost-benefit analysis, and economic evaluations.
