Higher Education Finance Manual: An Overview.
Collier, Douglas J.
It has been proposed that much of the financial information provided by higher education institutions is often ill-suited to the needs of planning and management. Most decisionmakers, particularly those at the state and federal levels, have difficulty in relating the financial information provided them to the issues and problem areas they must address. Therefore, the purpose of the Higher Education Finance Manual (HEFM) is to develop formats and procedures for organizing and displaying financial data, maintained in fund accounting terms, to serve the common planning and management needs at the institutional, state, and federal levels. This overview paper is intended to outline the reasons for and methodology employed in the HEFM project and to present that information that is felt to address the common information needs of planning and management at all levels.
