It may be wise to conduct a cost analysis before, during, and after the implementation of a new program, project, or initiative to gain a better understanding of the total costs associated with program implementation. The Children's Bureau provides short resource videos describing what a cost analysis is and why they are important. It provided useful concepts associated with cost analysis, budgeting, and accounting. The videos "Cost Analysis in Program Evaluation (Part 1) and (Part 2)" are available on the Children's Bureau website.
