In August 2004, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA, FSIS) contracted with RTI International (RTI) to develop a poultry slaughter and processing facility-level model with a proper user interface, product market characterization, and documentation for use by FSIS in regulatory impact analysis. The model uses data for fiscal year 2004; thus, analyses using the model will be based on a 2004 baseline. Using this model, analysts can input estimates of the costs of complying with a regulation and obtain estimates of the facility, market, and economic welfare effects of the regulation.
