Cost-benefit analysis also provides a portable, scalable model for organizing facts, assumptions, estimates, and findings in support of complex decisions. This course introduces concepts that are applicable to selecting optimal decisions through the use of trade-off analysis. In the course, financial and program staff, such as budget and program analysts as well as project managers and contracting personnel, will learn to conduct accurate cost-benefit analyses, thereby identifying choices that increase public welfare and improve efficiency.
