A Further Look at Management Information Needs in the National Institute of Education.
Hayman, John L., Jr.
This document proceeds from the model presented in ED 088 147 outlining in general form some of the issues and needs in a management information system (MIS) for the National Institute of Education (NIE). This report discusses management information issues and needs more concretely. The discussion is related to planning, developing, and operating one or more of the three major components of an MIS: (1) an output component that has the major task of delivering information to decision-makers so that their decisions are affected; (2) a data management or data processing component where classifications, storage, and analysis of various types occur, and from which manipulated data is retrieved; and (3) the input or data collection component system that collects and feeds in raw data. The report discusses the information requirements of various offices in HEW, information systems needs within NIE, and questions and options related to MIS planning. A plan is suggested for the 12 to 15 months of MIS development. (Author/MLF)
