Rapid implementation of policy as code
18F has been researching a prototyping technique for writing and publishing policy rules as computer code to improve speed and accuracy.
“No policy or rule stays the same forever. In response to a crisis, policy changes often come much faster, and stakes can be higher. A new rule might change the amount of benefit someone receives as part of a safety net program, or make someone eligible who was previously ineligible.”
