The assessment process is an important step in the evaluation, as it underlies the successful evaluation of a project. One solution to make the project assessment more objective is to apply the concept of a Group Decision Support System (GDSS), which in the decision process uses computing. This research tries to implement the concept by building an application for project evaluation and providing recommendations on project performance in local government agencies. The proposed Decision Makers (DMs) are involved: Executives of Government Institutions, Project Management Work Units, Business Process Owner Units, and Communities represented by the DPRD. The computational process uses the Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) method, and the Copeland scores voting method ranks the project of all DMs. The results of application computing in implementing GDSS and MCDM indicate that the process of determining project rankings will be faster and more accurate.
