Cost/Benefit Analyses

Redevelopment agencies frequently need to conduct investigations, financial and otherwise, to determine the cost and/or advisability of pursuing a particular course of action.  DHA Consulting has considerable experience performing investigations and analyses and possesses an outstanding ability to organize an analysis, conduct the necessary research, and modify the components, if necessary, to reflect the availability of information, and complete the analysis.  Dozens of these types of research projects have been completed including such varied efforts as preparing a fiscal impact analysis for proposed major developments, evaluations of the impact of new legislation, evaluations of real estate disposition alternatives, and the cost/benefits associated therewith, and numerous other special studies.
