Decisio is responsible for carrying out various social cost and benefit analyses, cost and benefit key figures (CBA), cost effectiveness analyses (CEA) and quick-scan (S)CBAs. In addition, Decisio regularly tests SCBAs that have already been carried out and we provide basic and advanced SCBA courses to interested parties. In recent years, Decisio has carried out numerous SCBA studies for a wide range of clients. Among other things, Decisio is a partner of www.mkba-informatie.nl.
A social cost and benefit analysis helps to compare different alternatives for a project in an integrated manner. This is not just a financial consideration. After all, an SCBA also identifies other, non-financial effects. For example, when it comes to the effects on accessibility, the environment and the economy. In an MKBA, all social effects are expressed in euros as much as possible, so that an integrated comparison is possible. Would you like to know whether a SCBA is the right tool to use? Then take a look at the Decisio decision tree on social and economic assessments, which will quickly show you which tool you can best use for social and economic assessments.
In general, an SCBA leads to the following results:
In addition to comparing alternatives of the same project, an SCBA also makes it possible to compare different projects with each other. This can be useful, for example, when drawing up spatial and/or infrastructural investment programmes. Projects with the highest social return deserve to be included as a priority in investment and implementation programmes. The SCBA provides policymakers with as much objective information as possible to set these priorities.
