The Policy Impact Assessment (PIA) Report is an important document for the appraisal agencies to verify and evaluate whether the policies have met verification and evaluation criteria, especially for agencies responsible for issuing policies, to ensure there is a thorough recognition of impacts on all aspects of economy and society once the policy is promulgated and implemented. In fact, the process of evaluating the quality of the PIA Report in recent years still faces certain difficulties and challenges, which is partly the result of lacking specific criteria for the quality evaluation of PIA Reports.
In order to support the evaluation of the PIA Report, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has conducted The Manual on Evaluation of Policy Impact Assessment Reports (hereinafter referred to as “Manual”/“This Manual”), with the support of the ASEAN Economic Reform programme of Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) represented by the British Embassy; and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The Manual focuses on developing a system of evaluation criteria of the PIA Report and becomes a tool to assist officials of the MOJ in reviewing and evaluating the quality of the PIA Reports in the appraisal process of the proposal for legal normative document formulation and Legal normative document drafts. Other agencies responsible for the evaluation of PIA Reports (including legal affair organisations under the ministerial, ministerial-level agencies and Departments of Justice) may also use the Manual in the appraisal process. In addition, the Manual is also expected to be a useful reference for the State management agencies at all levels responsible for drafting PIA Reports for self-evaluation and to improve the quality of PIA Reports from the outset. Other subjects such as researchers, lecturers can also use this Manual for professional purposes, if appropriate.
This document consists of 3 main parts:
• Part A: Basis for the development of the evaluation criteria for Policy Impact Assessment Reports
• Part B: Policy Impact Assessment Report Evaluation questionnaire
• Part C: Appendices
