Summary

Because of the interest in an increasing usage of formal planning, programming, budgeting systems (PPBS), this report carefully analyzes the nature and role of PPBS and its potential impact on higher education. Part I describes the salient features of PPBS and traces the development and related analytical techniques in governmental agencies and institutions of higher education. Part II illustrates both the concepts and implementation of PPBS by a detailed explication of the University of California's experience with it. Part II suggests a form of policy analysis for educational planning which is an alternative to traditional PPBS and concludes with a case study of policy analysis applied to year-round operations and with general suggestions for managers seeking to improve their resource allocation procedures. The benefits and complexities of PPBS may not be worth the costs in all situations, and educational institutions should carefully weigh these factors and realize that there are no easy, automatic answers to the problems of higher education. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author)
