The aim of this intensive 4-month M&E project was to support the multi-year reform of Kenya’s licenses and permits environment in order to assess if its outcomes had reach the target of 25% reduction of regulatory burdens for businesses by 2012 set by the government. The project reviewed all efforts and the monetized results of the reforms obtained since 2005.
For this project, Jacobs, Cordova & Associates deployed practical and adapted Standard Cost Measurement methods and other quantitative tools to:
- Assess in detail the compliance costs for 26 high-priority licenses affecting key economic sectors.
- Design a model that can model the compliance costs for all business licenses current based on a sample of representative ones
- Monitor and evaluate the implementation of reforms launched since 2005.
Kenya, World Bank, 2011-2012.
