Multi-Criteria Analysis: Ignorance or Negligence?

Dobes, Leo; Bennett, Jeffrey

Description

Multi-Criteria Analysis is highly subjective and potentially open to abuse through the influence of special interests. Moreover, it is seriously flawed conceptually and mathematically. At best, its continued use by public sector policy advisers and decision-makers is due to ignorance. At worst, it represents gross negligence in the provision of advice to Ministers, and possibly breaches Australian Public Service Values and the Code of Conduct.
