This paper examines the use of the Integrated ABC-and-EVA Information System for the management of new technology projects. The advantages of integrating the Activity-Based Costing system with the Economic Value Added financial performance measure and the positive impacts of this integration on project costing are presented. The effect of the Integrated Information System on overall project performance is discussed. Finally, building on the preliminary findings of its worth and effectiveness, suggestions for future research in using the Integrated ABC-and-EVA Information System for project management are made.
