  1. *These proposals were put forward for consideration but were not acted upon immediately.
  2. **Higher weighted scores indicate greater benefit gain by acting on the investment opportunity.
  3. ***If marginal analysis was to proceed beyond deficit elimination, re-allocation from disinvestment 43 to investments 1 to 3 would be recommended, as the benefit loss on the disinvestment is less then the potential benefit gained through these investments. Investment opportunity 4 and 5 would not proceed as the expected benefit gain is less then the benefit loss of disinvestment 44.
