How we support of public sector clients
- Economic evaluations. Governments in Australia and around the world are under increasing pressure to provide evidence based assessments of value for money in the provision of transport, health, educational and cultural infrastructure. BIS Oxford Economics’ economic evaluation services include cost-benefit analysis, feasibility studies, business case development, input-output analysis and applied econometrics.
- Land use economics. We offer a range of economics and planning services to assist governments including economic impact assessments, policy analysis, highest and best use assessments, development feasibility analysis, property evaluations, retail demand and forecasting, employment land studies, demographic and trend analysis and residential demand studies.
- Demand modelling and scenario analysis. We can provide clients with forecasts for product demand, industrial trends, economic conditions and business performance on a national, industry and regional basis. Our tools give us a base for conducting rigorous ‘what if’ analysis, that can be used to test the robustness of planning strategies and assess the implications of public policy changes and other shifts.
- Employment studies. We help local and state government planning teams better understand current and future employment trends and land requirements; and also help government asset management teams understand and plan for their future workforce capability requirements.
