Is there a word for the person who decides how many things there will be?

For example: person A decides how many children will go on the annual trip, and (and then person B decides who these children will be). What word describes the job of person A?

Some more examples (thanks, J.R.):

  • How many freshmen will we admit into the college of engineering next fall?
  • How many printers our office will buy next year?
  • How many bags of potato chips we should bring to the family picnic?
  • How many windows should we have in each room in our new appartment?
  • How many questions should be in the final exam ?

The closest word I could think of is "counter", but a counter is the one that counts, not the one that decides about the number.
