- Assume you are put in charge of launching a new website for a local nonprofit organization. What costs would you need to account for? Make a list of expected costs and benefits for the project. You don’t need to list values, just sources of expense. Consider both one-time and recurring costs.
- Consider the situation you addressed in the previous question. Create numeric cost estimates for each of the costs you listed. Calculate the net present value and return on investment. Include a break-even analysis. Assume a 10 percent discount rate and a five-year time horizon.
Assuming monetary benefits of an information system at $85,000 per year, one-time costs of $75,000, recurring costs of $35,000 per year, a discount rate of 12 percent, and a five-year time horizon, calculate the net present value of these costs and benefits of an information system. Also calculate the overall return on investment of the project and then present a break-even analysis. At what point does breakeven occur?
Assume monetary benefits of an information system of $40,000 the first year and increasing benefits of $10,000 a year for the next five years (year 1 = $50,000, year 2 = $60,000, year 3 = $70,000, year 4 = $80,000, year 5 = $90,000). One-time development costs were $80,000 and recurring costs were $45,000 over the duration of the system’s life. The discount rate for the company was 11 percent. Using a six-year time horizon, calculate the net present value of these costs and benefits. Also calculate the overall return on investment and then present a break-even analysis. At what point does breakeven occur?
