Enrichment Analysis - A Technique for Encouraging Better Planning and Better Use of Resources.
Andrew, Loyd D.
The University of Utah in building a planning, programming, and budgeting system has developed an analytical measurement called enrichment analysis that has proved useful in focusing faculty and administration attention during budget setting on long-range planning, objectives and outputs. Enrichment analysis shows not only the rate of increase in cost per student by department and program, but how resources were allocated within programs. Use or the analysis in budget setting has encouraged a hard review of objectives and output in relationship to historical and projected costs. As a result of these reviews, resources have been freed for special enrichment, objectives have been revised, and better planning/programming has been initiated. The paper briefly describes the development of the analysis and data requirements. The major thrust of the paper is on the use of enrichment analysis to encourage rigorous planning and beter allocation of resources. An overview of various emphases in planning is included in the report. (Author/HS)
