The technique permitted uses swing weighting in controlled conditions led by an experienced facilitator it is different from simple weighting and scoring which is explicitly not recognised as a valid objective methodology.’

The 2018 Green Book stated: ‘Multi Criteria Decision Analysis is a technique for dealing with complex unmonetisable values. It can be employed, in certain circumstances, at the long-listing stage to consider unmonetisable trade-offs.’
