In the Province of Québec, public colleges depend heavily on public funding: 85% of their budget come from the Department of Education. Those institutions complain that their financial resources are insufficient since Québec government decided to cut their budget in the mid-90. Of course, this suppose that they are efficient, that is, there is no waste in their use of inputs (labour, energy, equipment, etc.). In this paper, our goal is to measure this (in)efficiency. Le système collégial public québécois est très dépendant financièrement des subventions accordées par le gouvernement provincial. En effet, 85 % des revenus des collèges d’enseignement général et professionnel (cégeps) proviennent de subventions gouvernementales. Les cégeps se plaignent d’un sous-financement chronique depuis les fortes coupures budgétaires qu’a connu le système d’enseignement québécois pendant les années quatre-vingt-dix. Avant d’appuyer ce discours, il faut vérifier si les cégeps prouvent leur efficience dans la gestion des fonds publics. C’est cette mesure d’efficience des cégeps que nous faisons dans cette étude.
