ACIL Allen: Assessment of the Value of Information Infrastructure as an Asset

ACIL Case Study

ConsultingWhere designed and undertook a study for ACIL Allen (Economic Consultants, Australia) to evaluate how public agencies might present business cases for geospatial information by considering it as a component of the national infrastructure and using the same financial approach as might be adopted for investment in the national road or utility network. The study involved cost-benefit analysis, asset valuation and discounted cash flow. There was also a substantial interview programme involving commercial and public sector users of address information.
