Legal Framework for Regulatory Impact Analysis
OEA and OGC issued a memorandum on November 19, 2020, providing guidance to agency staff on conducting regulatory impact analysis. This memorandum is currently being reviewed for possible revision or replacement by OEA and OGC. Pending such review, rather than relying on the OEA-OGC guidance memo, staff will seek guidance directly from OEA and OGC on a case-by-case basis as was done prior to the issuance of the memo.
