The Functional Economic Analysis Model (FEAM) was developed by IDA for use by DoD information managers when analyzing alternatives for saving costs when preparing business cases. The model is used to enter costs and get information on a series of alternatives to a budget baseline representing total current and planned DoD expenditures for a given function. Using the supplied information, the model performs a Risk Adjusted Discounted Cash Flow (RADCF) analysis and presents the results in graphical and tabular form.
