I have been formally moved to the PBO in Zambian Parliament as Budget Analyst. One of the activities that we are expected to undertake in the PBO is preparing Policy Briefs. I have been tasked to prepare a policy brief on Zambia's Pensions System. This is one of my first tasks after being formally being transferred to the PBO in addition to the costing of the Regional and Urban Planning Bill. My questions are: What is a policy brief? What should constitute a policy brief? When is it written? How long should it be? e.t.c
I have also attached the Costing of the Regional and Urban Planning Bill that was conducted by the PBO in Zambia. This being the first assignment, I would like to solicit your comments in terms what is missing and areas of improvement.
