监管分析及检讨
ICF has conducted regulatory impact analysis for dozens of agencies, including estimating costs and benefits and the effects of regulations on small businesses. ICF economists have conducted retrospective reviews to evaluate whether existing rules have generated benefits and costs in line with those predicted before implementation and help determine whether the rules should be amended or eliminated. We have helped our clients build internal capacity by developing databases combining multiple sources of regulatory costs and benefits data that agencies can use to conduct analyses. We have peer reviewed regulatory analyses developed by government economists to recommend improvements.
