An appraisal and evaluation framework has been developed which provides a nationally consistent approach to appraisal and evaluation of TDM measures. This framework will provide a basis for more informed choices between non-infrastructure and infrastructure solutions, a better understanding of how and when to use TDM measures and it will also enable TDM investment decisions to be considered and integrated with other investment choices. The framework is governed by two key inputs the objectives and stakeholder consultation. A TDM Measure Selection Toolkit is outlined to guide the selection of a set of short-listed TDM measures which are then subjected to a two stage appraisal process (Short-list Appraisal and Rapid Appraisal). Short-list Appraisal is based on an assessment of the anticipated outcomes, and the confidence of achieving those outcomes and relies on scoring the alternative against a range of criteria. The scores on the outcomes and confidence dimensions then provide a basis for identifying options worthy of subsequent more detailed appraisal and business case development. Rapid Appraisal is based on a Strategic Merit Test and Rapid Benefit Cost Analysis. The final step of evaluation is the process of reviewing the outcomes and performance of an initiative after it has been implemented.
