Assessing Government


This Tool will guide EOs through the process of situating where their issues lie with governments. Which Ministries and agencies have influence over the EO’s proposal and which ones can be positively influenced by the EO.

How to use this tool

This Assessment Tool is designed for use by EOs. It is best used as a guide for employers and enterprise development specialists who will facilitate the assessment process with the EO and among other actors.


The core business of representative employers’ and businesses’ organizations is to advocate, on behalf of the business community, for policy and regulatory change that will ensure an economic environment conducive to enterprise creation and development. Effectively influencing government at all levels is therefore critical to the EO’s mission.
