Subject: How to assess local governments' transport policies
I am Sangjin Han, working for Korea Transport Institute. Recently, I have
been involved with the project, "Evaluation of local transport policies and
thier implementation results". The project is devised to encourage local
governments to follow central government's transport stragies and to
introduce competition between local governments by scoring their tranport
policies. We are planning to establish trees of transport policies
according to hierarchies, and we will score each policies according to some
numerical scales. Then we will make comprehensive score for each local
government using AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process). Possibly, the central
government may consider this assessment score, when they allocate subsidies
to local governments. This idea seems to be too strict to local government
which should be assessed.
Anyway, I need some documents, reports, books, web sites, or whatever,
which show experience of assessing or evaluating local governments'
Thank you very much.
