A Position and Rate Control System: An Ingredient for Budget Planning.
Gilbert, Linda L.
A position and rate control system was undertaken at Florida State University in 1974 to alleviate the problems of the manual budgeting system. The budget master file was created biweekly by combining a subset of the current payroll/personnel data base with the updated budget information from the previous budget master file, keying on positional (line) numbers. The salary budget prepared at the beginning of the fiscal year is the basis for the budget data. The input, outputs, and users of the system are described. The alignment of the payroll/personnel data base, keyed by social security number, with the salary budget information, keyed by position number, involved two major problem areas, which are discussed.
