What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the number of proposals for improving the existing business environment that were officially submitted to and discussed with the relevant authorities. This can include, for example, a change of government policies, the way they are implemented but also amendments to various procedures and regulations (e.g. business registration, permits, taxation) as well as less demanding proposals (e.g. improving access to electricity).
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Define the criteria specifying what counts as “officially submitted” and “officially discussed”. For example, officially submitted means that a senior member of staff from a relevant authority received a written proposal of the types of changes proposed and why. “Officially discussed” means that these changes were formally discussed during a dedicated meeting with a senior staff member from the given authority.
2) Use key informant interviews (with the project staff, the relevant authority, and other stakeholders) and reviews of relevant documents (e.g. meeting minutes) to assess whether the criteria were met.
3) Count the number of proposals where the criteria defined in the first point were met.
