Abstract

Public sector facility location models have been defined as those that minimize client costs for a given level of service subject to a public budget constraint, whereas private sector models are those that minimize the total costs for meeting fixed client demands. We show that a slight reformulation of a typical public sector location model is both superior to the original model and equivalent to a typical private sector formulation. Thus, for the class of problems considered, a standard model type is appropriate regardless of the institutional context.
