    What is the better option?

    Puede ser que el ACE haya decidido a posteriori/en retrospectiva que el teatro ha sido sobre-financiado.

    Is it 'en retrospectiva' because they have taken into account all of the information and made an informed judgement whereas 'a posteriori' is merely a temporal phrase?

    Thank you for your help.

    I don't think you need either one in your sentence. Could you give the previous and following sentences?

    Sin embargo, no entiendo la decisión de reducir la financiación del teatro Almeida (por 39%). Puede ser que el ACE haya decidido a posteriori que el teatro ha sido sobre-financiado. Pero me sorprendería, he trabajado allí y nunca vi que circulara mucho dinero.

    The english sentence is : It may be that, with hindsight, the ACE....

    Thank you for your help.

    En lugar de decidir, creo que encaja más considerar o valorar (me inclino más por considerar). Y yo pondría "a posteriori".
