Project #44369 - Public Health Project: Composting Latrines for Kazo, Kampala, Uganda

Using the strategic planning and capital budgeting process write a paper per the following requirements. Your paper should discuss and cite at least three credible sources, be 12-15 pages in length with 6-7 peer reviewed articles among the citations (APA style)

I need a good outline and citations and whatever else can be done up to the budget limit

First, find and describe multiple sources of public and private funding (i.e., grants, donations, awards, special projects) for this project, including a list of references for your funding sources. Next, identify the funding constraints for each source. Finally, specify the internal ramifications of moving forward with the capital project and describe how you will structure these funding sources to meet the project’s goals.  Also describe the leadership model that would best help to make the project become a reality. Address the following questions:

  1. What did you take into consideration in order to create a balanced model of resource allocation? (e.g., human resources, community needs, technological advances, regulatory issues)
  2. What are the policies and processes that should be in place?
  3. What adjustments did you need to make to the capital budget policy and process?
  4. What were the alternative solutions taken into consideration in lieu of making a capital purchase?
  5. How do state and federal regulations impact the strategic plan?

Cover three very important topics in health policy development on a macro and micro level: capital budgeting, SWOT analysis, and leadership. Pay close attention to the required readings and lecture. Relate the concepts you are presented to an issue that may be currently under review in your health system, community, or nationally.


Five analytical techniques used in resource allocation:

1.       Volume analysis with revenue

2.       Volume analysis without revenue

3.       Capital budgeting

4.       Cost-benefit analysis

5.       Simulation

Capital BudgetingTraditionally, capital budgeting in healthcare has focused predominately on how a proposed investment will provide sufficient benefits in the form of additional revenues or reduced expenses. However, this approach does not support strategic investments in areas where long-term benefits are difficult to measure in financial terms, such as investing in healthcare technologies to improve quality of care or patient satisfaction. Effective capital budgeting requires systematic evaluation of the strategic and financial benefits of proposed capital investments. Overall, capital budgeting decision-making should be fostered by a decision analysis, a multi-objective decision model that focuses on the most critical objectives. Within a typical health system organization, such as a hospital, the chief executive officer, chief financial officer, chief information officer, and director of patient care services collaborate in the capital budget process in an effort to accomplish the objectives set forth in the strategic plan.

The strategic capital budgeting comprises the following eight steps:

  1. Establish evaluation criteria
  2. Classify proposals
  3. Ensure that proposals are complete and easy to understand
  4. Determine costs of proposals
  5. Rate proposals with respect to each criterion
  6. Set strategic priority weights for each criterion
  7. Calculate weighted values scores for each proposal
  8. Rank proposals by benefit-cost ratios.

Criteria typically fall into three categories:

  • Financial impact measures (e.g. the net impact of incremental revenues and expenses)
  • Strategic impact measures (e.g. enhanced market share and operating efficiency)
  • Measures of impact on quality of service (e.g. improvements to patient outcomes)

The strategic capital-budgeting method is a systematic approach to evaluating capital investment proposals that maintains a clear connection between an organization’s mission and strategies and its capital allocations. All of the steps involved in such a method are focused on helping the organization accomplish its overall purpose while reflecting the organization’s primary objectives for capital investments.


Strategic Planning Process

  1. Mission & Objective: The mission statement should be a clear and concise statement that describes the organization’s values, purpose, and visionary goals. The mission statement should be treated as a living document that is reviewed often and updated to accurately reflect the position of the organization.
  2. Environmental Scanning: Environmental scanning includes the analysis of the internal and external factors that inform the industry standards. Typically, a SWOT analysis is utilized to identify the health organization’s internal and external factors that may impact the system and determine the feasibility of a new program in the current environment.
  3. Strategy Formulation:  Using the information gained from the environmental scan, the health system should match its strengths to its opportunities and address its weaknesses to its threats. During this stage, the health system seeks to gain a competitive advantage over rival health systems.
  4. Strategy Implementation: The implementation phase can sometimes be the most difficult due to the allocation of funds to the projects within the strategic plan. This may result in the re-allocation of funds and staffing from existing programs and services, which inevitability impacts the community and staff morale.
  5. Evaluation & Control: The implementation of the strategy should be monitored and evaluated to ensure that the plan is on track.
