TIDH has a $10,000,000 investment budget, an investment hurdle rate of 11.0 %, and the owner has a requirement that all investments have a Payback Period (PBP) of under 3.5 years. Also, Project 2 brings the offices and warehouse up to the current fire code and the listed savings are the “facilitation payments” (i.e. bribes) that will no longer need to be made to inspectors to avoid the office being shut-down.
