ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the administrative function of planning and operations control. Due to the changes occurring in the college and university campuses, modern higher education is faced with the problem of organizing its administrative functions. This problem stemmed out from the fact that institutions today are more complex and larger, and therefore demand an increase of attention of their financial, material resources and personnel. For these institutions to meet the challenge, they are expected to maximize their operations. This is accessible by addressing the control of planning and operations, activities which administrators now have given less priority. The addition of a planning and operations officer to the staff of every chief administrator is emphasized.
