Provides a list of the main analytical models used by BIS to support policies.

In October 2012, Sir Bob Kerslake and Sir Jeremy Heywood commissioned a review of the quality assurance of analytical models that inform policy across government. The review was led by Sir Nick Macpherson, Permanent Secretary at the Treasury. He published his Review of quality assurance of government models in March 2013.

Recommendation 4 of the review asked departments to make a list of their business critical models publicly available - to encourage good practice in their quality assurance.
