As part of the agreement between Japan and the US, Japan supplied a certain amount of funding for construction projects by the US forces based in Japan.  These funds had to be divided among the US force components (Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines) based in Japan.  Each component had its own list of candidate construction projects among which it would allocate the funding.  The problem was how to develop a rational division and allocation strategy that all involved would see as fair.  US Forces Japan (USFJ) asked me to examine the problem and develop a contractual statement of work that could be used in letting a contract to solve the problem.
