Evaluating the Complexity of Public Decisions

 
The complexity of the public sector decision-making process is driven by internal and external competing factors that must be taken into consideration. Internal factors include defining values or ethics of a particular project that resonate with a decision maker or evaluator, which is determined to some extent by personal preference or bias. External considerations, such as benefit to the community, costs or budgeting restraints, legal issues, policy imperatives, and potential losses, such as budget overruns, ideological disagreements, and political contention, affect complexity.
