The study puts forward a diagnostic framework to allow DOLE Regulatory Offices to examine their current state of regulatory practice and identify capacity determinants that reinforce or impede the adoption of best regulatory principles and practice as embodied in the widely-used Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) Framework. The results of the diagnosis will help identify requisite gaps in capacity and advocacy so that such gaps may be addressed accordingly.
The RIA Framework was introduced to DOLE in early 2012 essentially to improve the quality of labor market regulation for increased competitiveness. To accelerate the RIA innovation adoption process for 2013 and sustain the initiative, a diagnosis of the regulatory process is deemed a necessary first-step so that the DOLE Capacity and Advocacy Strategy can be framed in a manner that will allow DOLE to level up the current best regulatory principles and practice and participate in the continuing regulatory capacity discourse.
