In todays fiscal environment, federal programs must be postured to conduct on-going tradeoff analyses to stay affordable as budgets are reduced and capabilities change or become more challenging to implement. This research focuses on recommended practices for conducting economic resource-constrained tradeoff analyses. The goal is to offer guidance to programs in making cost-effective affordability decisions that keep the program within its budget, or to find economic efficiencies if the program is currently affordable and within its budget.
