Efficiency Assessment of the Public Expenditure on the University Education in Egypt
Some of the official documents issued in 2006 to improve the quality of university education in accordance with
international standards, with the obligation of the state to allocate sufficient percentage of GDP spent on university
education, this requires the provision of adequate financial resources for the efficiency and fairness of the distribution of
public expenditure. Therefore, the research focused on evaluating the efficiency of public expenditure on higher education in
the past 10 years (2006/2007-2015/2016), to determine the appropriateness, efficiency and fairness in the distribution of
public expenditure on higher education, the results of the study showed that there is a difference between the financial stocks
for universities and public spending commensurate with the number of university students. In addition to differences in the
expenses of the student, this shows that public expenditure on higher education lacks justice in distribution between
universities, in addition to the decline in the number of students during the period (2010 to 2014) because of the years of the
vacuum and increasing the rates of inflation, the aggravation of the political events that led to the fluctuations in the volume
of public expenditure on higher education, which refers to the inadequate financial allocations for university research that the
lack of investment expenditure in most universities are dominated by the issue of wages, including the lack of efficiency of
public expenditure and losses in the equitable distribution of allocations between universities, which may hinder the process
of the development of university education in the future.
