Results First Initiative (Cost-Benefit Analysis)

What is Results First?
The Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative is a joint project of the Pew Charitable Trusts and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation that works with state governments (click the following link for a complete listing of state partners) to enhance evidence-based policymaking by offering innovative tools to conduct comprehensive cost-benefit analysis of social programming in a variety of state-funded contexts. By developing a comprehensive inventory of programs that are funded by the state to affect social change, what those programs can be expected to feasibly accomplish based on prior research, and how much those programs cost to implement, the Results First approach can allow for an apples-to-apples comparison of social programming through cost-benefit analysis.  The expected return of investment estimates that can be provided by cost-benefit analysis allows states to identify and invest in policies that work the best to achieve those outcomes at the most optimal cost to taxpayers.  More detail on the Results First Initiative can be found in Wisconsin’s Adult Criminal Justice Inventory.

Results First in Wisconsin
Though there has been a desire to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of criminal justice system inputs for some time, momentum for moving forward with the Results First Initiative in Wisconsin began with a unanimous vote by Wisconsin’s Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) in January 2014.  Subsequently, letters of invitation and support for Wisconsin working with the Results First Initiative have come from representatives of all three branches of government, including Governor Scott Walker, Former Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, and the co-chairs of the Joint Committee on Finance (Senator Alberta Darling and Representative John Nygren).  All shared the concern of adherence to evidence-based practices while optimizing fiscal efficiency through estimation of return on investment from cost-benefit analysis.

The Wisconsin version of the Results First model is currently housed within the Department of Corrections (WI DOC), as the initial focus of the Initiative is on adult criminal justice programming and its impact on reducing offender recidivism.  Since the initial kick-off of the Results First Initiative in Wisconsin, an administrative policy team and four distinct implementation teams have been formed, with membership representing multiple state departments, and justice system and lawmaking entities, such as the Departments of Corrections, Health Services, Administration, Justice, and the Wisconsin Court System.
