Project Appraisal

The financial and administrative resources available to governments, parastatals and private organisations are often limited and consequently resources must be shared by competing demands. The demand for effective use of resources continues to increase. Project analysis and appraisal becomes an appropriate tool to establish the optimal allocation of resources in the light of given objectives. It is through project appraisal that activities can be prioritised such that higher priority projects with greater payoffs both financially and socially are undertaken
