Programme Budgets for Graduate Training.
Appelquist, Claes G.; And Others
The development of a methodological framework for planning, programming, and budgeting which is specific to graduate training and research activities at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden is described. This pilot project is regarded as a step towards developing and implementing a generalized approach to an output-oriented finance system for graduate training and research at the university level. In the first three chapters of this report, the present status of the PPBS is described. They are devoted to an overview of program budgeting, an analysis of the national and local organization for higher education and research, and an economic review of the program activities. Basic concepts of program budget theory, such as productivity and effectiveness, are defined. The survey for the pilot study is divided into time utilization, cost accounting, space and equipment, and output measures. The proposed PPB-model to be applied to higher education and research is given along with the consequences of its introduction in the university system. Extensive appendices are included. (LBH)
