Municipal scorecard 2008 : understanding local regulations in Latin America (English)

The Municipal Scorecard 2008 report is a benchmarking tool that compares municipal level regulatory processes efficiency for businesses to obtain a municipal operating license or construction permit, and allows municipalities to compare themselves nationally and internationally. Despite the challenges of implementing a perception study and using the findings to construct rankings, the Municipal Scorecard has been perceived as a useful tool by municipalities wishing to understand what areas to improve and where they can find good practices in municipal management of licenses and permits. While the rankings presented do not necessarily capture all issues related to business climate, they provide an indication of potential problems and identify specific processes that may be ripe for reform. This report analyzes three municipal procedures: municipal operating licenses, construction permits and payment of property taxes.
