analysis,and administrators at the
University who have begun work
in programmed budgeting are
finding out why.
"It's more difficult to define
programs and analyze output at
a university," explains Donald Le-
Long, director of the Office of In-
stitutional Research which does
statistical and budgetary studies
for the administration.
"Problems of quality are so dif-
ficult to resolve," says Malcolm
Cohen, assistant to the vice presi-
dent for state relations and plan-
ning. "It's difficult to say whether
one program is of a higher quality
than another."
Nonetheless, this is precisely the.
kind of decision which must be
made if an effective programmed
budgeting system is to be imple-
Despite the difficulties in their
work, LeLong and Cohen believe
the system will be worth the ef-
fort. The completed system, they
say, would -help the University in
three key budgetary areas:
-By giving the University bet-
ter statistical Justification in ask-
ing for new funds from the State
-By helping the University
spend wisely in times of tight fi-
-By facilitating long-range
University planning.
For example, says LeLong, the
University would be able to calcu-
late what impact an enrollment

have on programs in other schools.

statistical studies of the courses.
dental students take in other
schools and the facilities they use.
Another example would be deter-
mining the effect of a change in
curriculum on the resources need-
ed by the library system.'
Despite difficulties in creating
the programmed budgeting system,
Cohen believes there already has
been considerable progress. Infor-
mation- reporting has been im-
proved, and changes made in the
University's information system.
These should facilitate work on
the project, he says.
In addition, those working on
the project have been successful
in' computing the cost per credit
hour, of various courses. Now, say
LeLong and Cohen, the problem is
putting these figures together to
allow computation of the cost of
an entire degree program.
When the system is completed,
it will be theoretically possible to
run a computer program which

would produce the optimal answer
to the problem of how to spend
a certain amount of available:
In this process, however, the re-
sult would depend heavily on the
predetermined value assigned to
each program. "Many people in
higher education are apprehensive;
about this kind of application of
programmed budgeting," LeLong
In any case, the ability to run
such a computer program is a long;
way off. "Optimizing models is a
highly sophisticated process," says
LeLong. "We haven't even scratch-1
ed the surface."
And the administration may be;
only scratching for some time to
come. For the budget squeeze
which has affected the rest of the
University is also limiting the ef-
forts of those working on the pro-
grammed budgeting system.
"It's expensive," says LeLong.j
"We're beginning modestly and it;
will take a long time-perhaps
three to five years-before the
entire system is in operation."
