Title:  A Manual for Budgeting and Accounting for Manpower Resources in Postsecondary Education
Description: This Manual describes, in detail, the basic elements of an information system designed to support the management of manpower resources in institutions of postsecondary education.

Chapter 3 contains a description of a recommended classification scheme for manpower resources and definitions of the categories within that scheme. It is useful in specifying and describing the manpower resources in each of these categories. Chapter 4 describes a framework for organizing and displaying information about the allocation of manpower resources to, and the actual utilization of resources by, institutional programs.
