Nelson, William C.
The Program Planning Budgeting Systems (PPBS) approach to decision-making has been adopted by government agencies and many colleges, universities and local school systems. As a result, the quantity of literature has increased phenomenally. This bibliography is intended to assist students, researchers, and practitioners in identifying references in specific areas of PPBS. A total of 1,051 citations, ranging in date from 1936 to 1969 but emphasizing the 1963 to 1969 period, present sources in categories of systems theory, planning and control systems, planning process, program budgeting, programing and management control, investment alternatives, analysis of alternatives, education and economics, basic data for PPBS, statistical analysis in PPBS, limitations of PPBS, and bibliographies. Entries are arranged alphabetically according to author, and each of the above categories is subdivided into educational and general categories. An author index is included. Volumes I through III are available as ED 032 417, ED 032 418, and ED 035 756 respectively. (CH)
