Academic physical education system may be described as the association of interrelated cooperating institutions which mission is to protect and improve health in the academic education process by efficient physical education and cultural services. Objective of the study was to analyze the current institutional situation in the national academic physical education system. Contributing to the study were the academic faculty and researchers (n=300) and the academic education system management (n=140). The study was designed to assess the overall institutional situation of the academic physical education system; management system quality; available resource; and efficiency of the management technologies. A questionnaire survey under the study found the academic faculty and research staff being on the whole reportedly satisfied by the existing institutional provisions for the academic physical education service; and clearly understanding the academic physical education service management technologies. The academic management staff members were found prone to the modern project management approach which they rate the most efficient physical education system management tool. It is concluded that the key success factor for the modern institutional structure of the academic physical education service is the strong commitment of every contributor to the physical education service, with a special role played by improved institutional integration and cooperation in the academic physical education service including the permanent flow of critical information and feedbacks to assess efficiency of the management decisions. In practical terms, the modern academic physical education service management models are recommended to give a special attention to the project method with its models, efficient progress criteria and progress testing toolkits.

Keywords: institutional structure, academic physical education system, project management technology.
