    Las Instituciones de Educación Superior con financiamiento público, deben rendir cuentas al Estado Colombiano, acerca de su desempeño en la ejecución de la labor que les ha sido confiada. El medio propuesto ha sido el de los indicadores de gestión, para lo cual el Estado traza unos lineamientos generales que sirven de apoyo a decisiones gubernamentales sobre políticas en materia de educación superior, entre ellas la asignación presupuestal a las universidades. Tal como está planteado, los indicadores de gestión no obedecen a un sistema propiamente dicho, razón por la cual este artículo presenta un análisis crítico de los indicadores de gestión para la educación pública en Colombia, basado en el modelo de calidad propuesto por Arturo de la Orden Hoz, que integra el contexto, la eficiencia, la eficacia y la funcionalidad. Se concluye que los indicadores de gestión propuestos por el Estado colombiano para las universidades públicas no miden la eficacia institucional ni la pertinencia de la educación que se imparte; que son de corte netamente eficientista y el propósito fundamental de su aplicación es contar con unos elementos que guíen la toma de decisiones en materia de asignación de recursos financieros a las IES como también decidir sobre la viabilidad o inviabilidad de la permanencia de éstas en el desempeño de la función que le ha confiado el Estado.****** Higher Education Institutions with public financing, are accountable to the Colombian State, through management indicators, for which the State outlines some general guidelines that support government decisions on policies in higher education, including the allocation budget to universities. As planned, the management indicators are not rooted in a system itself, which is why this paper presents a critical analysis of management indicators for public education in Colombia, based on the quality model proposed by Arturo de la Orden Hoz, which integrates the efficiency, effectiveness and functionality. We conclude that management indicators proposed by the Colombian state for public universities do not measure the effectiveness and relevance of the education provided; which is efficient and significantly cut and the main purpose of its implementation is to have some elements that guide decisions on the allocation of financial resources to HEIs as well as decide on the feasibility or viability of the continuance of them in the performance of the function entrusted to it by the State.
