Abstract—Many past studies have addressed budgeting which deals with yearly budget allocation planning while studies on the quarterly budget allocation and execution planning are still lacking. Our study concerns with the development of mathematical models for the faculty’s budget planning and execution that aims at optimizing the efficiency of budget utilization of faculties of a local public university. This paper illustrates the design and development of models to determine the quarterly budget proportion allocation. In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework and construct the mathematical model for the budget planning and execution. Three strategies for determining budget allocation proportion per quarter which are the horizontal line approach, staircase method and zigzag strategy are put forward. These strategies are determined based on analysis of past data and they are used to recommend certain quarterly budget allocations which have the potential of maximizing the efficiency of each faculty’s allocated budget utilization.
