The present chapter provides guidance on procedural issues related to benefits assessment. The discussion considers how to exploit the entire set of benefits assessment techniques when commissioning analyses, defining their scope, and interpreting their results. It focuses on how to evaluate the definitiveness of an analysis and its contribution to policy making. Even a limited analysis of a difficult topic may be useful if its strengths and weaknesses are well understood. Even a polished analysis may be useless if it escapes peer review or avoids important but difficult issues.
