Allocative efficiency measures the extents to which the technically efficient units falls shorts of achieving minimal cost. By using this measure manager can make decision about how to redistribute organizational resources to improve price efficiency. Allocative and overall efficiency are derived on the basis of budget line and cost minimization concept. The purpose of this study is to introduce the concept of allocative efficiency and propose two modified DEA models. Examples are provided to illustrate the similarities and the application procedure of the two model. By providing example and tracing the data application procedure, we found the same results but some cautions are needed to interpret the valuation.
