Make responsible, data-driven decisions
for your local community and government.
I was very impressed with the demonstration of CGR's Cost/Benefit Analysis specifically designed for Industrial Development Agencies. It's easy to use, affordable and offers economic development professionals an effective tool to measure potential projects.
Now is the time for economic development agencies to consider using a cost benefit analysis model. Resources are scarcer than ever and must be used carefully to create the highest level of private sector investment and quality jobs. Plus, a thoughtful cost benefit analysis will naturally generate a broader range of support for a project from community stakeholders.
The Center for Governmental Research’s cost benefit model is a simple to use, easily accessible, and an affordable option for IDAs to increase accountability and employ a critical best practice… best of all, the data sets and updates are all included.
