Abstract:

The Department of State is designing an improved program planning and budgeting system, which it hopes will improve planning and provide better linkages among resource planning, allocation, and expenditure processes. This system is intended to have many of the attributes of the planning, programming, and budgeting systems PPBS used elsewhere in the U.S. government. An important subset of any resource management system is its work force component. Work force management within the department has received intensive internal and external scrutiny. However, most of these efforts have focused on only personnel issues. Few examinations has been made of the totality of work force management in system terms-that is, explicitly linking goals, inputs, outputs, and processes.
