ABSTRACT
The article examines a procedure of applying the multi-criteria analysis for estimating the efficiency of public investment projects. It states that the procedure allows careful consideration of the external effects associated to public investments. It adds that a social benefit is an indicator that quantifies the satisfaction of the beneficiary community from the exploitation of public investments. It suggests that the social benefit should allow comparison between public investment projects with different lifetime. Such an objective can only be fulfilled if social benefit is measured by the same indicator.
