      Return on Investment in Workforce Development Programs INTRODUCTION. The general clamor to rein in government spending at all levels—federal, state, and local—is causing program administrators to focus on return on investment (ROI). The reason for this is thatin theory,, a prudent investor or a policymaker with fiduciary responsibility for.   Infrastructure Spending Is Down Across Government. Federal infrastructure investment has fallen by half ― from 1 percent to percent of GDP ― over the last 35 years, leaving more of the task to state and local governments. For example, federal spending on transportation and water infrastructure has fallen in real terms since , and the federal gas tax has not been increased .

      Return on investment (ROI) is a ratio between net profit (over a period) and cost of investment (resulting from an investment of some resources at a point in time). A high ROI means the investment's gains compare favourably to its cost. As a performance measure, ROI is used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or to compare the efficiencies of several different investments. It should be noted that the definition and formula of return on investment can be modified to suit the circumstances -it all depends on what is included as returns and costs. For example to measure the profitability of a company the following formula can be used to calculate return on investment. Return on Investment = Net profit after interest.
