Details

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) appraisal guide sets out the framework, assumptions and metrics used in the economic appraisal of DCLG policies.

Although the focus is on DCLG policies, this guidance may be of use to other government departments and organisations who wish to carry out their own economic appraisals or for people who simply want to understand how DCLG appraises particular policies.

The DCLG appraisal guide data book includes all of the appraisal and modelling values referred to in the appraisal guidance in 1 workbook. Future changes made to the data book will be detailed in the data book’s audit sheet.

We are continuously seeking to improve this guidance and we welcome receiving any evidence or feedback that could help improve it. If you have any evidence you would like to submit please send this to ChiefEconomistSign-off@communities.gsi.gov.uk
