This report presents the indicators for assessing the benefits of research investments, a detailed description of the Benefit Assessment System (BAS) and the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework using the indicators. BAS uses a systems approach where ReCAP-BAS is considered to comprise a number of interdependent and interacting subsystems of an organised whole system. 6 subsystems are identified and performance indicators are categorised according to these sub-systems. A scoring system is used for the indicators, and their surrogates for each subsystem are scored according to the relative importance in defining the subsystem.
