Fiscal Planning at the Community College Level.
Rollins, Charles E.
This paper emphasizes the need in junior colleges for comprehensive fiscal planning so that academic planning can be realistically linked to available revenues. Such planning would incorporate the following considerations: (1) available dollars should be used more efficiently since increased expenditures do not necessarily increase educational effectiveness; (2) fiscal planning should be done one or two years in advance, and up to five and 10 years in less detail; (3) fiscal decisions should be made considering possible benefits to be derived, past performance, and an estimate of the total, rather than initial, costs; (4) a humanistic view must be incorporated into the whole planning process to support institutional morale; (5) many of the revolutionary schemes, such as PPBS, that claim to solve all fiscal problems are not that efficient; and (6) academic planning and reform and fiscal planning cannot be separated.
