ESSnet on Standardisation Q2014 – European Conference on Quality in Official Statistics 2 nd -5 th June, 2014 Mr. Csaba Ábry (HCSO) – Ms. Deirdre Giesen (CBS, the Netherlands) Vienna, 4 th June, 2014
General overview on the action carried out by the ESSnet on Standardisation so far (Mr. Csaba Ábry) Presentation on the cost-benefit assessment model of the ESSnet on Standardisation (Ms. Deirdre Giesen) Structure of the presentation
ESSnet partners : Hungarian Central Statistical Office – HCSO, Hungary (co-ordinator) Istituto Nazionale di Statistica – ISTAT, Italy Central Statistical Bureau of Latvia – CSB, Latvia Statistics Lithuania – SL, Lithuania Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek the Netherlands – CBS, the Netherlands Office for National Statistics – ONS, United Kingdom L'Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques – INSEE, France ESSnet partners
ESSnet ‘STAND-PREP’ in 2010 Sponsorship on Standardisation in Recommendations of Sponsorship adopted by ESSC September 2013 Launch of ESSnet on Standardisation: September 2012 Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) was signed in September 2012 Specific Grant Agreement 1 (SGA-1)was launched in December 2012, duration: 15 months End of SGA-1 March 2014 Specific Grant Agreement 2 (SGA-2) was launched in December 2013, duration: 15 months End of SGA2 app. March 2015 ESSnet on Standardisation on CROS-portal (http://www.cros-portal.eu/content/standardisation) ESSnet on Standardisation on CROS-portalhttp://www.cros-portal.eu/content/standardisation History of the project
The task of this action is to support the establishment of the Integrated Statistical System within the ESS as outlined in the Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council on the production method of EU statistics: a vision for the next decade, COM(2009) 404. The outcomes of this project support a more effective statistical business process, both from product and process quality point of view. Connection between the project and quality issues
We are developing elements of the system of ESS standardisation thus we also need to keep the „big picture” (the future system as a whole) in mind Some of the actions of SGA-2 are direct continuation of the work of SGA-1 (inventory-related work, cost-benefit assessment, business architecture) Even though we work in the framework defined by the Sponsorship on Standardisation, the scope of some deliverables are or could be broader than this context (description of the whole ESS standardisation procedure; usability of the cost-benefit assessment at ESS level not just for the purposes of standardisation; business architecture; etc.) Main principles for our work
Work Package 1 Inventory of standards and quasi-standards Work Package 2 Framework and documentation Work Package 3 Case studies Work Package 4 Communication and dissemination towards the ESS Work Package 5 Management Work Packages of SGA-1
Why needed Types of objects to be assessed One list for all purposes Actors involved Type of data to be collected Aspects to be considered Context Plans for SGA-2 Checklist for cost-benefit assessment
ESS decision making on standardisations needs: evidence transparancy on (distribution of) benefits and costs based on “principle of porportionate analysis” Why cost benefit assessment methodology?
For assessing which types of objects? Strategic decisions, e.g. development of programme of standards for a specific business area Development of specific standard Implementations of a specific standard Comparing alternative ESS projects …
Applicable throughout life cycle of standards
One list for or all purposes Aspects can be assessed for all types of objects to obtain comparable results and to be efficient. However : Aspects can be judged “not relevant” Type of scoring can vary
Actors involved Perceived costs and benefits of main ESS stakeholders should be assessed: Statistical authorities Main users of national and ESS statistics Data providers Interested parties ouside ESS (e.g. UNECE) However : For most purposes probably Eurostat and NSIs can provide assessement, possible after consultation with other parties.
Type of data collected Scores on specific aspects (on scale or with estimation of costs/benefits in terms of euros) Qualitative (text) information explaining main considerations Overall judgment (favor-neutral-oppose or rating of alternatives judged)
Aspects to be considered 1.Quality of statistical output 2.Quality of ESS production system 3.Other effects of ESS production system (e.g. flexibility) 4.Position of partner of the ESS (e.g. autonomy) 5.Stakeholders of the ESS (e.g support and funding, response burden) 6.Other effects on ESS (e.g. ease of entry for new partners, relationship with non-ESSparties) 7.Initial costs and investments 8.Recurring costs 9.Risks
Context Impact assessment for regulations Impact analysis VIP projects
Plans Refine checklist and methodology – using lessons learned and ideas from related work. Test methodology from perspective of Data providers (NSIs and eurostat) Organisation and analysis Data users (e.g. representatives of DIME) Evaluate use of methodology for decisions in different stages of life cycle of a standard.
