PAD520 Week7 Assignment 3

In order to determine the following, an adequacy method must be applied.  “Adequacy refers to the extent to which any given level of effectiveness satisfies a particular standard.  The criterion of adequacy specifies expectations about the strength of a relationship between policy alternatives and a fixed or variable value of a desired outcome’ (Dunn 2012, Pp., 197). The following can be determining as: (a) maximize effectiveness at the least cost is a Type II problem. (b) Maximize effectiveness at a fixed cost of $10,000 is a Type I problem. (c) Achieve a fixed-effectiveness level of 6,000 units of services at a fixed cost of $20,000 is a Type II problem.  (d) Maximize net benefits, assuming that each unit of service has a market price of $10 is a Type I problem. (e) Maximize the ration of benefits to costs; assuming that each unit of service has a market price of $10 is a Type III problem.
