Abstract In many applications to which DEA could be applied, there is often a fixed or common cost which is imposed on all decision making units. This would be the case, for example, for branches of a bank which can be accessed via the numerous automatic teller machines scattered throughout the country. A problem arises as to how this cost can be assigned in an equitable way to the various DMUs. In this paper we propose a DEA approach to obtain this cost allocation which is based on two principles: invariance and pareto-minimality. It is shown that the proposed method is a natural extension of the simple one-dimensional problem to the general multiple-input multiple-output case. Ó 1999
