Abstract or Summary
  • Some of the problems concerning the present educational programs which confront the institutions of higher education are, reviewed. Resources allocation is at the root of the issue. Budgeting orientations are presented with special emphasis on Planning Programming Budgeting Systems. PPBS is still in its developmental stage in the field of education, primarily due to the difficulty of measuring educational outputs. Siegel's method and the improved Churchman-Ackoff procedure are introduced for measuring the relative significance of educational outputs, and for comparing the desirability of alternative programs which are to achieve the organization's objectives. Cause and effect analysis and input-output analysis procedures are discussed. Linear programming, methods from welfare economics and capital budgeting techniques are presented as potential optimization tools for a university. The following conclusions were made. 1. For more effective analysis and subsequently better decisions in regard to resource allocation, more comprehensive and more relevant data is needed. 2. A management information system may be designed and implemented to meet this need. 3. With the development of new measurement methods and further application of the currently available ones, the output of a university will be more satisfactorily measured. This prepares the way for introducing many analysis and optimization techniques which are widely used in other areas, to the field of education. 4. In applying the Planning Programming Budgeting concepts a long span of time into the future should be considered for more meaningful planning and budgeting. 5. A management information system may be designed to fulfill the information requirements of a Planning Programming Budgeting System.
