This article addresses the choice problem of a military decision maker who faces a large number of competing projects proposed by several subordinate organizations. Deciding which projects to approve based on subjective assessments risks alienating stakeholders by appearing arbitrary or unfair, but an objective evaluation of each project involves costly data gathering and verification. In this article, the authors propose the Nash bargaining solution (NBS) as an attractive selection rule. It incorporates a transparent notion of fairness and does not require costly assessments by the decision maker. The authors illustrate its possible application with an example from base realignment and closure (BRAC).
