Qualititive and Quantitative Allocations of Program Funds in a Non-Profit Institution.
Brown, Edward K.
Through a generalized application of the principles of programing-planning-budgeting (PPB), a process was devised for describing the methods of resource allocation in a nonprofit institution. By categorizing pupil service inputs according to basic skills, instruction, and supportive services it became possible to identify meaningful service input components. Each component was found to be contiguous with one of four assessed pupil need categories and, thereby, represented service-delivery units (SDUs). Assessments of the allocation procedures showed that (1) the functional cost of the SDUs was dependent on the levels (proportions) of resource inputs they contained, (2) significantly different proportions of resource inputs were associated with the SDUs, and (3) SDU data could be used to predict the level of finance that would be needed to improve the output of each SDU. Study findings suggest that the modified PPB is a viable system for quantifying program allocation procedures and for ascertaining what combination of school service inputs are most influential in maximizing school achievement.
