Abstract

Life-cycle analysis (LCA) is most commonly used to inform the product design process, but here the focus is on institutional design issues - contracts, rules, and procedures that govern the behavior of individuals working inlarge organizations. To illustrate the issues, this study investigates theprocurement, use, and disposal of microcomputers in state government agencies in Trenton, New Jersey, USA. It finds evidence of environmentally and economically suboptimal asset management, much of which can be explained andmitigated by considering the associated transaction costs.
