Development of an Inventory of Fiscal Competencies for Colorado Postsecondary Academic Administrators. AIR Forum Paper 1978.
Geiger, Joseph J.
A survey, designed to assist in the development of an inventory of fiscal competencies that academic administrators perceive to be needed if they are to be effective contributors to the budgetary process and to seek answers to the question of the existence of a widespread need for the development of in-service training programs for academic administrators, was administered to administrators of 13 Colorado postsecondary institutions. The study analyzed responses from 319 administrators who were asked to respond to 41 proposed fiscal competencies relating to budget requests, proper expenditure of appropriated resources, and translation of educational planning into fiscal impacts. The results of the survey demonstrated an overall need by administrators to significantly upgrade developing in-service curricula customized to one of three administrative levels, one of three institutional types, and two institutional sizes. The results can be used in any public postsecondary institution operating in a budgetary environment characterized by line item incremental budgets, a strong executive or legislative branch of government, and state-wide educational coordination with some state-level governance. A bibliography is provided. (Author/JMD)
