24Cost benefit analysisHB 3194 amends SB 267 and asks CJC to work with the Public Safety Task Force to identify a cost benefit tool.CJC uses a cost benefit tool modeled after the Washington State Institute for Public Policy work.Cost benefit analysis is the capacity to assess system costs, determine avoided costs and derive a benefit to taxpayers and victims demonstrated as a ratio.Cost benefit analysis was integral to securing funding from the Oregon Legislature to fund Drug Court programs.Results First Initiative works with states to implement an innovative cost-benefit analysis approach that helps them invest in policies and programs that are proven to work.States are selected for participation in Results First based on several factors. One is a commitment to making evidence-based policy decisions. Another is the ability to provide the data needed to operate the cost-benefit analysis model. A third is a willingness to dedicate resources to the effort, including staff with data, statistical-analysis, and fiscal-analysis skills.
