Education-Planning-Programming-Budgeting System Documentation Manual for Intermediate Units, Version II, Model 1.
Pennsylvania Univ., Philadelphia. Government Studies Center.
Two distinct types of planning-programing-budgeting systems (PPBS) have been developed in the ESEA Title III, Intermediate Unit Planning Study, for use by intermediate units and by school districts in Pennsylvania (see EA 002 750). The first type is detailed in EA 002 751 and EA 002 753 and is referred to as the manual version. The second type is a semiautomated version, dependent for its calculation on the use of electronic data processing equipment. There are two semiautomated versions: the batch-processed version (EPPBS - Version II, Model 1) and the on-line version (EPPBS - Version III, Model 1). Testing of the batch-processed version for both school districts and intermediate units was completed in April 1969. A report on the development and testing of the on-line version will be completed in May 1970. This manual is for the batch-processed, semiautomated version for use by intermediate units. This manual is not self-contained; it is to be used in conjunction with the manual for Version I, Model 2, Intermediate Unit (EA 002 751). (DE)
