Optimal's Corporate Capabilities

Optimal helps its clients find the optimal policies, programs, and projects through the valuation of program impacts against program costs. Cost-benefit analysis helps decision-makers assess the economic and social benefits and costs of a program, facilitating better decision-making. Optimal's cost-benefit analysis services are particularly useful when cost-efficiency is of central interest, and when indirect costs and benefits are involved. Optimal's rigorous cost-benefit studies constitute an important part of our program evaluations in both the public and private sectors.
