Recommendations for Improved Management of the Federal Student Aid Programs. A Report to the Secretary by the Student Financial Assistance Study Group. June 1977.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
Nationally obtained public testimony, evaluations of previous studies, discussions of prior recommendations, examinations of federal reports, and review of federal investigations have identified serious problems that threaten to undermine the integrity of federal student financial assistance programs, as well as public confidence in their administration. The recommendations made by the study group are designed to serve as specific answers for the improved management, delivery, and integrity of these programs. Three key areas requiring resolution are identified and serve as focal points for the report: (1) eligibility and certification procedures for institutions, students, and lenders; (2) delivery systems of the various financial assistance programs; and (3) program management and integrity of the agencies, institutions, and publics involved in federal student assistance programs. Some of the recommendations made in the report have been carried out or are being carried out; others require legislative and/or regulatory action, and some, deliberative review. Recommendations are indexed by subject area. A list of participants in public hearings and a bibliograbhy are included. (Author/MSE)
