One of the most important problems for governments is how to allocate budgets for public infrastructure projects. This question becomes especially important during periods of financial difficulties. The budget allocation model of public infrastructure projects proposed in this paper integrates 3 submodels: the fuzzy multi-criteria grade classification model; the fuzzy multi-criteria project ranking model; and the budget allocation model. This integrated model promises to allocate simultaneously the budget of public infrastructure projects and decide the construction budget for each unit. This budget allocation mode allows for ready reactions to changes of budget policies. It moreover, factors for discretionary budgets given to senior managers. Via this model, managers can significant ly improve management efficiency and take corresponding personal responsibility
