Professor John B. Miller prepared this case with the assistance of Research Assistant Om P. Agarwal as the basis for class discussion, and not to illustrate either effective or ineffective handling of infrastructure development related issues. The assistance of Michael R. Crane of TRIP II and Frank J. Baltz, Esq. of Shaw Pittman & Potts in the preparation of this case is gratefully acknowledged. Thanks to Charles Y.J. Cheah for adding the Monte Carlo materials. Data presented in the case has been altered to simplify and focus the issues, and to protect the confidentiality of those who were kind enough to help in describing the project.
