Information Exchange Procedures: Overview and General Approach.
Romney, Leonard C.
The Information Exchange Procedures (IEP) project creates the capability for exchange and reporting of that information, both financial and otherwise, necessary to calculate and evaluate costs (1) by discipline and course level, (2) by student major and student level, and (3) per unit of output. Most uses of comparable information and analysis can be grouped into three management functions: resource acquisitions, resource allocation, and planning and management. The major benefits of comparative analysis come from determining why differences exist. Principles used to guide efforts in this area indicate the collected data should be useful to the decisionmaking and planning process of postsecondary education, the conventions and procedures for aggregating the data must be uniform and acceptable, the information should arise from uniform, acceptably defined terms, and the reporting and exchange should involve two-way communication with built-in feedback mechanisms. The two phases of the project are concerned with direct costs and full or allocated costs. (Author/MJM)
