Many thanks to all the delegates who attended the Making the Business Case event in Newmarket. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. I’ve got to say that it was slighly surreal to be at the British Racing School and have a life-size fibreglass horse in the training room! Here are a few of the comments made by delegates from the day (reproduced with permission):
“Excellent presentation David, thanks. The style and delivery ensured my attention was held throughout.” – Russel Angus, Project Accountant, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
“Excellent.” – Phil Mellows, Assistant Finance Manager, East of England Strategic Health Authority

The Green Book is HM Treasury guidance for Central Government, setting out a framework for the appraisal and evaluation of all policies, programmes and projects. It sets out the key stages in the development of a proposal from the articulation of the rationale for intervention and the setting of objectives, through to options appraisal and, eventually, implementation and evaluation. It describes how the economic, financial, social and environmental assessments of a proposal should be combined and aims to ensure consistency and transparency in the appraisal process throughout government.
The Magenta Book is HM Treasury guidance on evaluation for Central Government, but will also be useful for all policy makers, including in local government, charities and the voluntary sectors. It sets out the key issues to consider when designing and managing evaluations, and the presentation and interpretation of evaluation results. It describes why thinking about evaluation before and during the policy design phase can help to improve the quality of evaluation results without needing to hinder the policy process.
