Management Information System Project: Administrators Manual to the Program Oriented Accounting System. The Budgetary Process.
Iowa Univ., Iowa City. Iowa Center for Research in School Administration.
This document overviews the supporting relation of a Management Information System (MIS) to a Program Planning Budgeting Evaluation system (PPBE) and then concentrates on the financial tract aspects of an MIS. First, five tract areas in which an MIS provides information are discussed: pupils, personnel, finance, facilities, and community. Then, an indepth presentation is made of the finance tract by presenting the processes that administrators can use in building a financial plan to match a preplanned level of goals and objectives. The manual presents an overview of the budgetary process, suggests the way in which an MIS might be implemented, and explains and presents examples of a program oriented budgetary system. The mechanical aspects of the budgetary process (forms required, keypunch instructions, etc.) are described, and budget reporting is discussed. The finance tract information includes a separately presented computerized budget planning printout designed to assist the school district administration in developing a suitable master financial plan.
