The Development of a Planning, Programming and Budgeting System. Technical Report.
Appelquist, Claes-Goran; Zandren, S.
In CERI's program on institutional management in higher education, eight universities were brought together to set up teams within their institutions to work on their respective pre-selected problem areas. The planning, programming and budgeting system (PPBS) was developed as a management tool which would improve effectiveness by increasing the requirements of economic thinking and economic responsibility at all levels. The system devised at Chalmers University of Technology has three main objectives: developing an output-oriented finance methodology applicable to the Swedish university system; developing a modern management methodology applicable to a PB university; and obtaining possibilities for changing the decision-making structure outside and inside the universities in a decentralized and democratic direction. The application of program budgeting at Chalmers for higher education and research is devised for undergraduate engineering, undergraduate science and social science, technical research and graduate training courses, and external services such as building maintenance and library services.
