An evaluation of the ways in which behavioral sciences can contribute to an increased expected output of policymaking goals. The discussion proposes the establishment of a general systems theory and proceeds to model relations between behavioral sciences and policymaking within that framework. Redesign specifications outline various changes necessary in the public policymaking systems, the behavioral sciences, and the intertransport modes between them, with recommendations for better policymaking practices. Because of the great number of changes required to accomplish this, it is concluded that rather than a systems-redesign approach, a different system should be designed--one which makes use of the same general systems theory to provide an essential framework, but transforms parts of behavioral sciences into a main component of policy sciences. 29 pp.
