The European Commission has recently contracted the Centre for Strategy and Evaluation Services (CSES) to undertake a Study to Develop an Upgraded Single Market Scoreboard (SMS) as a Governance Tool for the Single Market. For further information about the existing SMS, please click the link here.

As part of the consultation exercise, you are invited by the European Commission to provide feedback on the current and future development of the Single Market Scoreboard via this online survey.
In particular, the assessment of the stakeholder consultation feedback will help to:

  • identify advice and input in order to upgrade the Single Market Scoreboard to better monitor the state of the Single Market in its four dimensions: free movement of goods, services, people and capital;
  • assess the existing Single Market Scoreboard and its accompanying indicators;
  • map these against policy needs;
  • identifying new and relevant indicators – covering legal and economic issues and taking stock of the situation for users;
  • and recommend how to improve the user-experience within an upgraded online scoreboard.
For further information about the study, please see the introductory letter here.

The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. The study findings will be anonymised and aggregated to prevent survey respondents from being identified. All data collected will be treated confidentially in line with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and will be deleted within 12 months of completing this study.

The deadline for survey completion is the 31st October 2019. 

Thank you in advance for completing all survey questions.
