Abstract : This paper proposes an analytic model to improve Department of Defense (DoD) investment and divestment decisions. It builds from rules of thumb (RoTs) natural to government decision-makers and uses best practice models to improve the RoTs. It suggests three recommendations for the DoD: adopt the proposed model and address analytical barriers to inform RoT decisions, track investment vs. divestment decisions and Yes/No data points, and institute a Divestment Panel.
