Cost Benefit Analysis

Exchange Square construction

Across Greater Manchester the public sector is piloting new and innovative ways of working. New Economy, with support from central government, is helping to demonstrate the amount of taxpayers’ money that can be saved by these new ways of working and the impact they can have on the quality of services enjoyed by Greater Manchester residents.

In the short-term our Cost Benefit Analysis work will save money, through identifying which programmes provide the greatest operational efficiencies. In the longer-term our work will drive economic growth, by focusing resources on those programmes which are proven to deliver social and economic opportunity.

More details of the work can be found here:

In an effort to embed these new ways of working, we deliver evaluation and cost-benefit analysis training sessions for staff from a range of organisations and with varying levels of experience. Training activity includes ‘light touch’ introduction sessions on the tools and processes we use in our evaluation and cost-benefit analysis activities, and more in-depth full-day training courses which help organisations to build capacity to undertake their own cost-benefit analysis and to embed these new skills.
