Tools for CBA
A document or software produced with the aim of supporting 
decision making, i.e. something that carries out a process
in decision support.
Decision support exists to help those who have to take decisions 
deal with the complex and wide-ranging information involved
in contaminated land management. Decision support can
be provided as written guidance (flow sheets, model procedures)
and/or software. It aims not only to facilitate decision
making and ensure that the process is transparent, documented,
reproducible and robust, providing a coherent framework
to explore the options available. A “tool” is a document
or software produced with the aim of supporting decision
making, i.e. something that carries out a process in decision
support. Cost benefit analysis tools use a variety of techniques
to support decision making related to costs and benefits.
The valuation of external factors, whose value is subjective,
such as environmental impacts is the most contentious issue
in the application of cost benefit analysis to contaminated
land management.
