COMPARATIVE APPRAISAL OF TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC

VERGLEICHENDE BEWERTUNG VON VERKEHRSWEGEINVESTITIONEN DES BUNDES

STARTING FROM THE APPLICABLE PROVISIONS OF THE FEDERAL BUDGET RULES, THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES THE DECISION TECHNIQUES - COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS, COST-EFFECTIVE ANALYSIS AND ECONOMIC VALUE ANALYSIS - KNOWN COLLECTIVELY AS COST-BENEFIT STUDIES. IT IS NOTED THAT A COMBINATION OF THE ELEMENTS OF THESE DECISION MAKING TECHNIQUES MAY BE USED TO ARRIVE AT A CERTAIN DECISION MORE CLEARLY THAN WOULD BE POSSIBLE BY A VERBAL DESCRIPTION OF EFFECTS WHICH CANNOT BE CONSIDERED IN FINANCIAL TERMS OR BY THE PROVISION OF NON-AGGREGATING GRADES OF ACHIEVEMENT. THE THEORETICAL LINKS ARE EXPLAINED AND ALSO HOW THE APPRAISAL OF TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT IS ACHIEVED IN PRACTICE. EXAMPLES OF THE EVALUATION PROCESS SHOW BOTH LOGICAL AND CALCULATION STEPS. A LOOK AT FUTURE WORK ON THE SOLVING OF PRACTICAL PROBLEMS COMPLETES THE INFORMATION.
