Information Exchange Procedures Manual (Field Review Edition): A Synopsis. Technical Report No. 46.
Romney, Leonard C.
The purpose of the Information Exchange Procedures (IEP) projects is to create among higher education institutions the capability for exchanging and reporting that information, both financial and otherwise, necessary to calculate and evaluate costs (1) by discipline and course level and (2) by student program and student level. Most uses of comparable information and analysis can be grouped into three management functions: resource acquisition, resource allocation, and planning and management. The major benefits of comparative analysis come from determining why differences exist. The field review version of the procedures manual is concerned with directly assignable costs (that is, costs that can be assigned to specific activities). Full costing procedures, however, will be added in the final edition of the procedures manual after they have been adequately pilot tested and reviewed. The dominant theme in the project is to provide for collection and exchange of those data that will provide funders, resource allocators, and planners and managers with comparable data on which to base valid judgments.
