Title: Analytical Tools for Local Economic Analysis
Agency: DOD
Contract: N00014-11-M-0051
Award Amount: $99,999.00


Altusys will develop an analytical tool to enable Marines or Soldiers at the company or lower level to assess local economic conditions and develop courses of action to impact the economy. Presuming that rapid re-employment of the host-country civilian labor force and rapid repair of the infrastructure contribute to stability, the project addresses itself to the immediate post-combat infrastructure repair projects available to local commanders acting autonomously. Altusys will identify the minimal additional training needed to provide personnel with the skills to collect simple measures to support a Provisional Economic Analysis that is Rapid and Local (PEARL). Relying on pre-existing Department of Defense doctrine regarding"how to do,"the analytical tools developed would identify"what to do"as a short list of projects likely to provide economically and politically successful local economy improvements. Algorithms applied to templates for standard kinds of infrastructure projects will identify projects that can be done"now"with the resources available"now"for a"now"that is revealed upon real time, post-combat, inspection and measurement of the area of responsibility. Altusys"breadth of experience will ensure that economic and anthropological inputs are tempered by the experience of veterans of real stabilization operations.
