GUTIERREZ LOPEZ, Enrique; PRECIADO RODRIGUEZ, Juan Martín  and  ROBLES PARRA, Jesús Martín. Decision making model for the sustainable construction of public works. Estud. soc [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.51. ISSN 0188-4557.

Objective: Develop a model of the decision making process for the sustainable construction of public works. Methodology. Methodology: Procedure consisted in the application of interviews to decision makers, selected through a sample of experts. Next, the variables or codes were identified, which were incorporated into a qualitative data analysis system to obtain the weights of the variables in order to develop a sustainable decision model and generate scenarios with different alternatives. Results: The decision-making model obtained was integrated from the transformation of the qualitative data coded through a scale to establish the corresponding quantitative values. The general matrix of vectors was obtained, from which the alternative is selected according to the criteria of sustainability and decision making with sustainable rationality. Limitations: During the investigation, logistical difficulties arose in the choice of decision makers that led to the modification of the sample. Conclusions: The conclusions of the research is that, with the application of the model of sustainable rationality of the decision-making process for the construction of public works, it will be feasible to change the limited rationality or rational expectations by selecting an alternative from several, to a sustainable rationality that allow to support in the definition of public policies.

Keywords : regional development; the process of decision-making and sustainable rationality; limited rationality; rational choice; dimensions of sustainability.
