Economic evaluation manual

Published: | Category: Economic evaluation , Manuals | Audience: Local & regional government

The NZ Transport Agency's Economic evaluation manual (EEM) is the industry's standard for the economic evaluation of land transport activities for New Zealand. The EEM sets out economic evaluation procedures and values used in calculating benefits and costs, necessary for applications seeking investment where a benefit cost appraisal from the Transport Agency is mandatory.

The 2018 update of the EEM (amendment 2) replaces all previous versions and updates.
