This is an attempt to fill a gap in terms of analysis of the structure institutions of policy making which conduct evaluation of issues, prioritization, creation of recommendation-forming entities, selection of preferred options, and transmit policy recommendations to policy makers (industry leaders, legislators and regulatory executives).
