The guidance notes on the Instructions for Official Studies of Central Government Measures (“Instructions for Official Studies”) are intended for use in studies of central government measures. The purpose of the guidance notes is to promote good quality in the basis for making decisions on central government measures.
It is important for central government measures to be well founded and carefully considered. This implies that a good basis for decision-making shall be established prior to making a decision as to which measure should be implemented.
The guidance notes are intended to enhance understanding of the requirements under the Instructions for Official Studies, and make recommendations on how such requirements can be complied with. The contents of the guidance notes are not binding in the same manner as the Instructions for Official Studies, but can serve to supplement and elucidate the contents of the Instructions.
