Cost Benefit Analysis in contemporary project evaluation

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday Sep 7, 2016, 4:00 pm

From: Queensland Branch

Cost Benefit Analysis in contemporary project evaluation – a facilitated discussion between academics, practioners and public policy advisors

The use of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) has become an important component of any business case for major infrastructure expenditure in Australia and, in some cases, is mandated by legislation.

This event aims to identify the key challenges in the contemporary use of CBA in the evaluation of major projects.  The format will involve a brief presentation from the perspective of a public policy advisor, followed by a facilitated discussion between three main sectors involved in  CBA in Australia – academics; professional economics consultants; and public sector policy advisors.

The aim of the discussion is to build networks across those active in CBA in Queensland, identify common ground and issues for further analysis and research, as well as possible themes for future events. 

The session will be followed by drinks and savouries. 

There is no charge for the event but prior registration is required and places are limited.
