The Austroads Guide to Project Evaluation assembles knowledge on project evaluation methods, parameters and tools into a readily available and accessible resource for planners and decision-makers.
The Guide provides advice to practitioners beyond the standard benefit-cost analysis (BCA) or multi-criteria analysis (MCA) evaluations, including project risk assessment, the national and regional impacts of projects, distributional (equity) effects of projects, and project post-evaluation analysis.
This Guide will be superseded by the revised National Guidelines for Transport System Management when they are published in late 2014.
The Guide to Project Evaluation comprises:
- Part 1: Introduction to Project Evaluation
- Part 2: Project Evaluation Methodology
- Part 3: Models and Procedures
- Part 4: Project Evaluation Data
- Part 5: Impact on National Regional Economies
- Part 6: Distribution (Equity) Effects
- Part 7: Post-completion Evaluation
- Part 8: Examples Asset Valuation and Audit
Each part of the Guide can be purchased separately or all parts can be purchased as a set in hardcopy or PDF.
