The PBIM utilizes a participatory governance model for operational planning and resource allocation that integrates the four key elements of the strategic planning cycle district-wide:

  • Planning
  • Budgeting
  • Resource allocation
  • Evaluation

PBIM relies upon its strategic planning processes as the foundation for integrating planning and budgeting. Strategic planning includes the District Strategic Plan and planning for Academic Affairs, Student Services, Facilities, Information Technology, Human Resources, Enrollment Management, and Fiscal Resources.

The Colleges, working in partnership with the District Service Centers, have the primary responsibility for developing educational and resource plans that meet the needs of students.
