Report on Reports: A Study of the Cost of Completing Reports for External Agencies, Fiscal Year 1975-1976. OIRA Report No. 6-20.
Gell, Robert L.; Munson, Ann
A survey was conducted throughout Montgomery Community College to gather information regarding the time spent by various units on the completion of reports for external agencies. Data were obtained for the actual reports filed between July 1, 1975 and April 1, 1976, and for the last three months of the fiscal year an estimate based on previous experience was made. Using a cost per manhour of $8.00 as an average for the time spent by deans, administrators, clerks, and typists, it was calculated that in fiscal 1975-76, the college would spend at least $131,048 or 16,381 manhours filling out reports for external agencies. This amount is roughly equal to eight full-time employees working all year on external reporting. External agencies requiring reporting included state agencies and boards, various federal agencies, national professional associations, accrediting agencies, and other postsecondary institutions. In the four attachments to this document, the costs of external reporting are summarized and are broken down by department or office, and the reports prepared for external agencies are itemized. For each report, the requesting agency, college office, manhours, and costs are listed. (JDS)
