Economic evaluation manual - volume 1

Published: 01 Jan 2010

This manual is currently being replaced by the updated Economic Evaluation Manual (EEM), released in October 2013.

In certain cases these volumes will still apply - for guidance on when to apply the updated and/or previous volumes, please link through to the updated EEM.

The NZTA's Economic evaluation manual - volume 1 (EEM1) is the industry's standard for the economic evaluation of transport activities and is used by approved organisations for economic evaluation and the preparation of funding applications to the NZTA. The EEM1 sets out procedures and values to be used for the calculation of benefits such as savings in travel time, increased trip reliability, changes in vehicle operating costs, reduced accident costs, as well as benefits from increased transport user comfort, reduced driver frustration and impacts on the environment and non-transport users.
