Regulatory Impact Assessment
Every government should seek to establish a regulatory framework that contains quality regulations, which achieve legitimate public policy objectives without imposing unnecessary costs on business and citizens. Quality regulations can foster innovation, facilitate entry into new markets, promote the adoption of international standards, and enhance competition which contributes to increased productivity and inclusive growth.
iAC can assist government in conducting Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) within an appropriate systematic framework to ensure that regulations are efficient and effective in a changing and complex world.

- Cost-effectiveness analysis;
- Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) etc.
- Type of data to needed for high quality RIA
- Ensuring Compliance
- Communicating Results
Our approach is combining OECD RIA method with other tool such Design Thinking to get the best output of RIA.
Smart City Implementation Strategy
There is no universally accepted definition of a smart city. It means different things to different people. The conceptualization of Smart City, therefore, varies from city to city and country to country, depending on the level of development, willingness to change and reform, resources and aspirations of the city residents.
iAC approach is much aligned with this concept and see Smart City implementation is about utilizing technology, IoTs and data to mainly solve problems of the city. By solving the most pertinent problems of the city efficiently, then only the city can evolve. Adopting smart technology and solutions provide the avenue to brand the city a Smart City.
What We Do?
iAC have developed a 5 steps approach of Smart City Implementation Strategy:
- Understand city needs. What are the problems we want to solve.
- Develop smart infrastructure, solutions and services.
- Building internal competency and readiness.
- Branding and community awareness.
- Maximizing data utilisation for planning and commercialization.
