Such restrictions can be optimal if the specific knowledge relevant to making these substitutions lies a t a higher level in the organization. This occurs, for example, when there are external effects on other parts of the organization that cannot be incorporated in the manager’s performance measure, but can be incorporated in the performance measure at a higher level of the organization. Budgets can be fixed or variable. They are fixed if the amount of authorized spending is independent of the level of activity or of performance.

The rights allocated through such physical budgets are less complete and therefore more constraining than are decision rights allocated by the grant of monetary budgets. Dollar budget authorizations tend to be used when the intent is to grant some discretion in the choice of inputs. When rights are allocated through monetary budgets without side constraints, decision agents have the opportunity to sell or exchange assets, and therefore to substitute among them. The organization is better off to the extent that managers use their specific knowledge to make substitutions that increase the efficiency of the organization.
