Abstract


This study determined the performance of the 16 colleges and institutes of the Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (DMMMSU), La Union, vis-à-vis their efficiency along the following performance indicators: Program Requirements, Instruction (Faculty and Students), Research, Extension and Others (Annual Budget) from 2010-2012. The study made use of documentary analysis. It utilized the descriptive evaluative research design and considered several entities for evaluation using a non-parametric approach and non-statistical method called Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) in Decision Making Units (DMUs). It further employed the Input Oriented Multi - Stage DEA Constant Returns-to-Scale (CRS) Model. The means of the data for the three years, 2010-2012, was taken. The “best practice” in the frontier is the basis to calculate the adjustments necessary for inefficient colleges/ institutes. There is no single college or institute in the entire university which could serve as a model in efficiency in all the performance indicators considered but there are best practices from the “efficient” DMUs which could be adapted by the “weak efficient” and “inefficient” DMUs..
