Monitoring, evaluation & impact assessment

Making evidence-based decisions to ensure maximum value for money is a top priority in today’s world, where there are ever-increasing demands on limited resources. To this end, there is a growing interest in learning lessons from interventions and applying them to future policies and investments.

Our expert team can support these ambitions by identifying the impact of a policy or specific intervention using an appropriate mix of primary and secondary data sources. Where a formal evaluation is required, we deploy an experimental or quasi-experimental design and statistical modelling techniques to isolate the impact of the intervention from background trends.

We are recognised leaders and innovators in this field, able to combine knowledge of official guidance (such as Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) in the U.S. and WebTAG and from the What Works Centre in the UK) with technical expertise and a willingness to innovate.

Some of the specific areas where we can provide world-leading expertise include examining the impact between transport investment and economic performance, the behavioural impacts of transport improvements and ‘soft’ interventions, the interaction between transport and tourism, and the impact of improving accessibility for disabled people. 

How we can help you

We regularly work with transport authorities, operators, and central government to monitor and evaluate interventions and programmes, also sharing the evidence and lessons learnt with a wider audience.
