The Application of PPBS in Higher Education: A Status Report.
Newton, R. D.
In response to increasing pressures for improvement in the management of resources, many institutions of higher education have investigated the application of planning- programming- budgeting- systems (PPBS) some have adopted it to meet the demands imposed by jurisdictional agencies, and a few have introduced it frequently in modified form into their own internal budgeting procedure. The paper traces the development of PPBS in higher education and discusses some of the commonly observed deficiencies. It concludes that although its application can assist institutions in the management of their operations by supplying better measures of optional courses of action and providing an interrelated view of both the present and the future, it is likely to raise the level of conflict and to provide an apparent mechanism for increasing centralized control and direction.
