Help please brain fade
Wow, I am having a brain fade right now in the 11th hour. All done my narrative but need the cost benefit formula. Here is my info.
Portable Radio Grant 800MHz
15 year life span

Cost benefit is $.50 at the 15 years. Not sure about radios, but other equipment has a life expectancy of 10 years in which case your cost benefit would be $.75 per person.
Total project price divided by population divided by life expectancy.

Hopefully the grant gurus will chime in on this. I think it should be around a few dollars, although I have heard of people winning with a lot higher cost benefit. Presenting a good argument in your narrative helps.

If you ask either of the "M" companies, they always base their costs on a 5 year replacement cycle.
Real life is almost always longer.
