The main work areas of the Departments Economists are:
  • To incorporate economic analysis into Policy Development and Evaluation.

    This ranges from assessing the economic costs of a policy to carrying out detailed health and regulatory impact  assessments on issues such as the 2006 Smoking Order. We also provide support and advice on the monitoring and evaluation of policyLink to an external website.
  • To achieve Value for Money and Accountability in capital expenditure, we provide advice on business cases pre-submission and quality assure business cases submitted to the department ensuring these are compliant with Treasury and DFP guidance.
  • To signal to department policy colleagues changes to appraisal guidance and to implement these changes to the appraisal process.
