Goal programming $\&$ data envelopment analysis (GoDEA) for target-based multi-level planning: Allocating central grants to the Greek local authorities. (English) Zbl 0915.90155
Summary: We develop an interface between Goal programming and Data Envelopment Analysis (GoDEA) in order to integrate target setting and resource allocation in multi-level planning problems. Data envelopment analysis (DEA) has been traditionally used for assessing the performance of individual decision making units and, therefore, necessary extensions are needed to apply DEA principles to the global organizational level without, however, losing its attractive features. The method was originally developed as an aid to the reorganization of the allocation of central funds to local authorities in Greece.
