Cost Benefit Analysis including Public Sector Discount Rates

The Treasury encourages important public sector decisions to be informed by cost benefit analysis. 

It has recently prepared a Cost Benefit Analysis guide to replace the previous Primer.

The purpose of the guide is to make cost benefit analysis (CBA) more accessible, particularly for managers who commission CBAs and for analysts who need to carry out 'rough' CBAs.  However, even experts require guidance on certain aspects.  The Treasury welcomes comments and questions on it.
