This intensive 4-month project aimed to measure and evaluate if the multi-year reform started in 2005 of Kenya’s licenses and permits environment had reached the Government’s proposed objective of a 25% reduction of regulatory burdens for businesses by 2012. For this project, Jacobs, Cordova & Associates deployed practical and customized Standard Cost Measurement methods and tools to:

  • Assess 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 currently based on a sample of representative one.
  • Monitor and evaluate the implementation of reforms launched since 2005.

Essential insights from this measure and evaluation (M&E) project permitted JC&A to document the critical role of establishing political targets for major reforms to galvanize the efforts of ministries and stakeholders and avoid the many pitfalls through transparent and strict measurement standards.
