Developing a Program Budgeting System as an Aid in Planning Higher Education.
Haggart, S. A.
In planning for higher education, budgets should be developed that reflect not merely the status quo but rather provide a realistic picture of what occurs relative to what should occur in current programs. This requires setting up an informational framework to provide a mechanism for generating and evaluating alternate ways to achieve objectives--in essence a program budgeting system (PBS). This paper discusses: (1) the basic features of program budgeting; (2) the problem areas in developing a PBS; (3) the need for all levels of the institution to participate in the development of the PBS and the educational effort involved in getting this participation; (4) the necessity of effective coordination of development activities; (5) the need for the development and maintenance of an analytic capability; (6) the need to decide who does what in developing the system; and (7) the first step in academic planning within a PBS at the department, school, college, university, and system level.
