6 provide a direct comparison of the ISS funding priorities to the results from RAND’s PortMan analysis assuming no lifecycle costs (FY08C). The up-arrows indicate that the ISS funded the project at greater than 50 percent of the total proposed cost, and the down-arrows indicate that the project was funded at less than 50 percent of its total cost. As described in Chapter Two, because RAND was not provided with the effect of partial funding on project value, our portfolios fund each project either at 100 percent (selected) or not at all (not selected).
