Why Planning, Programming, Budgeting Systems for Higher Education?
Planning, programming, budgeting systems (PPBS) require extensive investment on the part of institutions of higher education. But there is pressure from public agencies and the public in general for higher education to explore and use these techniques for improved management. The new environment for higher education includes competition with other social programs for funds, an interdependent economic system, and the acceptance of PPBS by federal, state, and local governments, and by business. A PPBS formulation can provide additional insight into program changes by identifying resource requirements and developing costs by program tends to improve understanding of objectives and outputs. Three methods of implementing of PPBS are listed in the present document: planning studies, evolutionary development of PPBS, and the "turn-key" changeover to PPBS. This paper concludes that an institution should begin implementation of PPBS cautiously, but that the PPBS technology would be useful to college administrators in developing their management art.
