Many governments are working to improve the quality of new laws and ministerial rules by making more systematic their internal processes for production, quality control, regulatory impact analysis, and stakeholder consultation. Yet building these good regulatory practices across many ministries and agencies is difficult, costly, and slow.
e*RIA is the first integrated software solution for systematizing the entire process of developing draft laws and other regulations through better design, RIA, stakeholder consultation, and quality control so that governments can produce higher quality, more market-friendly regulations at lower cost. To produce this innovative e-Government platform, Jacobs and Associates has teamed with The Ergo Group, a leading technology provider in the e-Government field.
e*RIA is an e-Government platform designed from concrete experiences and OECD best practices, and inspired by solutions already implemented in Mexico . e*RIA:
- seamlessly ties together all government agencies into a single, fast, coordinated, paperless, collaborative and transparent process. Governments can track and coordinate legal and regulatory projects from inception to adoption;
- guides regulators in drafting regulations and conducting regulatory analyses with the help of prompts and templates that improve decision-making. e*RIA integrates every step of successful regulatory impact analysis from design of the process to identification of impacts to consultation and review by independent experts;
- provides an effective process for stakeholder consultation and publication on each regulation and RIA. e*RIA is a tool for greater regulatory transparency and stakeholder participation. It can be designed to produce an online registry of regulations to expand access for businesses and citizens.
- helps regulators through the process of reviewing, formatting, and submitting the draft to a regulatory oversight body (the regulatory review and management function recommended by the OECD).
We provide a full range of services to ens ure that e*RIA works for you, including customization of the software in close consultation with your government, on-site implementation, user training, and user support.
