Identifying and Encouraging Exemplary Projects of Academic Planning and Budgeting. Management Studies Task Force Series.
National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, Boulder, CO.
The efforts are summarized of four Ohio institutions of higher education (Ohio University, Kent State University, Michael J. Owens Technical College, and Lorain County Community College) to develop and improve academic planning and budgeting processes. Supported by a grant by the Ohio Board of Regents and the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, the project began on June 1, 1978 and lasted one year. At each institution staff designed and carried out tasks specific to those institutions. These included such elements as incorporating formative evaluation in the administrative planning process, increasing the use of information systems, eliminating unnecessary paperwork, facilitating multi-year planning, avoiding conflicting or overlapping committee assignments, making inventories of existing data, drafting management packages, improving data collection and analysis, revising budget submission procedures, and conducting needs assessments. Exemplary activities are highlighted, and all activities are detailed. Appendices include the provost's description and charge to the structural review committee, the structural review committee's final report of May 1979; a compendium of historical information for planning, a description of the staff planning process, sample planning reports to planning units, and a description of the revised procedures for preparing proposals of the current status of the planning process.
