This framework is one of three developed by the Policy Project in collaboration with the New Zealand policy community. It sets out what great policy advice looks like and what enables it. Good advice engages decision makers and helps them take a decision, it is clear about the problem/opportunity, is informed by evidence, it balances what is desirable, possible and cost-effective, and it is savvy. The framework has sections on quality enablers, acid tests and the characteristics of quality policy advice 

Together, the frameworks, and the tools that have been developed to sit under them, provide an infrastructure for improving policy quality, skills and capability.
