Summary

This report presents a strong argument and general guidelines for the development of a Management Information System (MIS) for the Community College System of Connecticut. Also included are ideas to assist state budgeting and finance officers in making a Planning, Programming, Budgeting System (PPBS) an effective operation in that state. Part I of the report discusses advantages for community colleges and public higher education in Connecticut of using MIS and PPBS. The importance of MIS is in providing readily available information needed in implementing PPBS. PPBS can make a great contribution to policy decision-making through providing a means for establishing and evaluating the performance of program goals. Part II deals with information which can be provided by MIS regarding use of faculty, staff, space utilization, and an accounting system. Part III presents steps for implementing MIS and PPBS which include the consolidation of information as it moves upward from the college unit through the central office, the Commission for Higher Education, and finally, the state offices.
