  • Application: A Letter to the Board of Directors

    Decisions involving capital expenditures often require managers to weight the costs and benefits of different options related to the same goal or project. For instance, deciding whether to replace, repair, or do nothing to existing equipment is a capital expenditure decision that involves calculations, projections, and deliberations. Managers must be able to quantitatively analyze different options for capital expenditures to make the best decisions for their organization.

    For this Assignment, review the information in the scenario presented. You will utilize the information in this week’s resources and media to make a recommendation in regard to a capital expenditure.
