Abstract : The paper is concerned with a governmental decision-maker who chooses among alternatives whose costs and benefits have been illuminated analytically. The decision-maker is considered to be involved in a planning, programming and budgeting system and to be responsible for at least some area where cost-benefit studies can be helpful. The decision maker's study team is envisaged as being given an assignment to develop the alternatives and their costs and benefits. The output of the study team is some representation of a cost-benefit surface. (Author)
