CBA Manager

Project : Cost Benefit Analysis Manager

Client : Policy & Legislation Directorate of the Gauteng DED

We were tasked with a mandate by the Policy and Legislation Directorate of the Gauteng DED to develop a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) Model to serve as a means of evaluating economic development projects as defined in the provincial Growth and Development Strategy.
Part of this strategy is to invest in low cost high impact projects with clear benefits. Key social benefits would include employment creation, poverty reduction and accelerated economic growth. The criteria DED used for funding projects was arbitrary and not based on set of defined criteria or funding models.

To assist we designed a custom made CBA tool which estimates and totals up the equivalent money value of the benefits and costs to the community of projects to establish whether they are financially and economically valuable.
