ASVB Users

The NZ Treasury encourages important public sector decisions to be informed by Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). To help compare different options in New Zealand, the Treasury has developed a CBA tool called CBAx. CBAx is a spreadsheet model that contains a common database to help agencies monetise impacts and do return on investment analysis.

NZ Treasury has purchased an ASVB licence to use our 62 wellbeing values, and currently sub-licenses their use to a number of New Zealand Government departments.

For further information please follow the link to their CBAx information page.
