Description Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Total Total Costs Benefits Net Ratio ROI If you have detailed cost benefit analysis data tables graphs graphics output from Cost Benefit Analysis software etc. include it here. Include the total project cost for time period and the total income expected to be generated and or saved during the period. This can be converted into the expected ROI Return on of the project.
