Influence of PPB on Capital Budgeting.
Ellis, Arthur E.
This talk is divided into two parts: Part one covers Planning, Programming and Budgeting for Capital Programs. Part two is a brief description of the Coho Salmon Program and how Program Planning and Budgeting in both the operation program and the capital phase was used to develop the Salmon Fishing Industry in Michigan. The planning process consists of ten steps: (1) the identification of needs, (2) the identification of broad objectives, (3) standards which will apply generally to all capital improvements, (4) the consideration of alternatives, (5) the comparison of the alternatives, (6) the selection of the preferred alternative, (7) the allocation of the state's resources, (8) the fiscal plan for the governmental unit, (9) the economic conditions of the community and (10) political priorities. The focus of the programming phase is on the resources needed. Two important items in the programming phase are: (1) the question of incremental development of a capital complex and (2) the whole problem of time phasing of a capital project. Design preparation is divided into three steps: (1) schematic drawings, (2) preliminary plans and (3) final plans and drawings. The budget should contain a series of analytical support documents containing (1) the economic and financial considerations used in making the decision, (2) the reasons for the time phasing and (3) discussion of the alternatives.
