Percent of total senior management's time. Ask managers to estimate what percentage of their time senior managers spend dealing with government regulations, inspections, negotiations and other bureaucratic burden.

It should not include time spent negotiating procurement contracts with the government - only time dealing with red tape and bureaucracy.
