National Conference on the Initiation of a Planning, Programming and Budgeting System in a State Division of Occupational Education.
Williams, Robert T.
The Center for Occupational Education helped to initiate and assisted in implementing a planning, programing, and budgeting (PPB) system for State agencies administering occupational education in North Carolina. The conference was a means of disseminating the results and those of similar efforts by the various State departments represented. The presentations were designed to provide a mix between the principles of planning and management and the practical problems encountered when implementing these principles. Presentations covered these topics: the Center's PPB project, laying the groundwork for PPB, educational planning, integrating PPB concepts with Office of Education requirements, program evaluation and review technique, local-State planning relationships, establishing a planning concept and budgeting cycle, and the integration of planning and evaluation. Handouts and figures accompanying the presentations are included. The appendixes contain the planned and actual conference program; lists of the planning committee, consultants, and participants; exhibits accompanying one of the presentations; and the evaluation questionnaire sent to conference participants and a summary of the results.
