Internal Pricing Within the University - A Conference Report.
Breneman, David W., Ed.
This report describes the proceedings of a Conference on Internal Pricing for University Resource Allocation held in Berkeley, California, July 7-9, 1971. The conference was attended by approximately 25 economists and university administrators, who were organized into panels to discuss the theory and implementation of internal pricing. The report is organized as follows: Section I presents an introduction to the material. Section II contains a background paper prepared by the editor and distributed to the participants in advance of the workshop; this paper provides the focus for the topic and also describes the formal organization of the conference. Section III summarized the major ideas, issues, agreements and disagreements that emerged in the course of the two and one-half day sessions. Section IV is an analytic critique of internal pricing and an agenda of issues for the future. Appendices include: a plan for a pilot project in pricing university space; notes on university resource allocation; a structural analysis of the university resource allocation problem; and a paper on internal pricing at an institution of higher education; implementation, planning and information needs.
