Administrative Management in NIE. A Report.
The purpose of this report is to recommend certain administrative management policies and procedures for the National Institute of Education (NIE). Administrative management activities for NIE are personnel, budget, finance, general services, contracts and grants, and overall administrative management. Management information is included in this list of activities, especially where the information or data are derived from administrative sources, such as the finance or personnel systems. In this report, administrative management activities are described in terms of (1) the policies governing NIE as a federal agency, (2) the management policies recommended for NIE, (3) the operational procedures recommended for NIE, and (4) the management and program decision process of NIE as an agency. The report identifies documents and issuances that are to be developed for actual use by NIE as an agency, but which are not appropriate for inclusion in this report. Examples of such data are the document flow of personnel actions, travel orders, and contracts; a staffing pattern; the Common Accounting Number structure (CAN book) to be used for NIE accounting; and the allotment of funds (both program and administrative) for NIE operation during FY 1973. The objective of these administrative management measures is to provide an appropriate management structure for the NIE director and his managers to use as an instrument, effective July 1, 1972, to develop NIE into a fully operative agency; to fashion the FY 1973 program of R&D funding; and to execute that program.
