Policy advice measurement

This measurement exercise helps agencies better understand the cost and quality of their policy advice function and helps them identify opportunities for improvement within their agency.

It is also expected that this policy measurement exercise will help inform the DPMC-led Policy Project to improve the performance of the policy function across government agencies by identifying areas where performance and organisational capability maturity could be improved. See the Policy Project section on the DPMC website.
