William F. West examines the checkered history of program budgeting (PPB) as a means of rationalizing the allocation of resources within and across government agencies. The book includes an in-depth study of the adoption and effects of PPB at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. West also discusses how the disappointing results of PPB speak more broadly to the goals and assumptions of formal requirements for planning and performance assessment.
