Classification of Implemented Foreign Assisted Projects into Sustainable And Non-sustainable Groups: A Discriminant Analysis Approach

IC Chibuzo


Four variables of factors affecting the sustainability of foreign assisted projects at the end of implementation were extracted from literature review and informal interview of project
management professionals. The managers of these projects were asked to rank these variables according to their relevance and importance in enhancing the sustainability and non
sustainability of foreign assisted projects in Nigeria. Discriminant function analysis was applied in carrying out detailed analysis of these factors. Two factors were found to be the most discriminating factors among the four factors. The two factors are delivery of service or benefits and long term institutional capacity. The study also further revealed that continued delivery of services or benefits is the most discriminating factor.

Key Words: Economic transformation, discriminant analysis, foreign assisted projects, delivery of service, long term institutional capacity
