Title: Capital Investment Procedures for FEMYSO

Problem Area: Undertaking an investment by FEMYSO involves weighing up the risk

against the returns but still capital investment decision are still one of the most undertaken

decisions by organization managers because it involves commitment of huge amount of

money, which will affect the business over time. FEMYSO is embarking on a capital project

at the hearts of Brussels but there is still a problem associated with the profitability of such

venture.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide Capital Investment guidelines and

procedures for FEMYSO and to show how it can maximize profit through decision-making.

Furthermore show the role of risk and interest rate in the investment.

Methodology/Design/Approach: This paper used theoretical framework of existing

investment theories to assess investment opportunity for FEMYSO and other organizations.

The role of Mintzberg et al. Rational model of decision-making in investments was analyzed.

This research paper went further to provide deeper insights into capital investment process by

evaluating the net present value of an investment and determining the risk associated with

investments.

Research Limitation/Implications: This study is limited to FEMYSO and other nonprofit

organizations that want to assess Capital Investment Projects.

Conclusion and Result: The more you wait to earn a dollar, the more heavily you

discount for it because of the time value of money. Good management decision in FEMYSO

and other related organizations will lead to profit maximization. The time value of money

problem can be solved by heavily discounting for the present value. Profitability of capital

projects will depend on the future interest rate, which is uncertain and subject to risk.
