McGivney, Joseph H.; Nelson, William C.
This case problem is designed for use by planning, budgeting, or administrative personnel in state or regional vocational educational organizations. The problem involves planning, programming, and budgeting which is best accomplished in small group settings. Each small group should ideally consist of persons with a variety of duties and responsibilities. The faculty of the formal training institute which utilizes this material could be familiar with planning, programming, budgeting systems (PPBS) and the situational context of the participants. The problem is organized as eight sequential steps which are correlated with the instructional outline in VT 009 085: (1) Analysis of Traditional Budget, (2) Manpower Needs, (3) Program Structure, (4) Achievement of Objectives, (5) Estimation of Costs, (6) Estimation of Benefits, (7) Program Budget, and (8) Evaluation of Program Budget and PPBS. The estimated time required to complete each step is provided. Each small group should have a calculator, an adding machine, a typewriter, a few basic references and sufficient space to facilitate the work. Some secretarial services would be desirable and duplicating facilities are necessary. (DM)
