Regional Office Procedures. Stage I Final Report for the Study of Program Management Procedures in the Campus-Based and Basic Grant Programs. (Volume III).
Puma, Michael J.
Volume III of a study of program management procedures in the campus-based and Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG) programs provides a description of procedures employed within the U.S. Office of Education regional offices to administer the Basic Grant and campus-based student financial assistance programs. The objective of the report is to present a picture of the regional office environment. Chapters discuss the following separate programmatic areas falling within the purview of the regional offices: organizational structure; distribution and editing of campus-based aid application forms; allocation of campus-based aid to institutions; panel reviews and appeals; compliance with federal regulations; program reviews; and training. It is noted that further analysis will be performed in this area during the preparation of the final report for Stage II. Appendices cover such areas as application forms, guides developed for the application form, proposed changes to existing regulations, taxonomy of program abuse, and training materials. Illustrations contain tables and exhibits on various areas including eligible institutions; regional BEOG funding levels; program reviews; organization charts; application log-in form; sample documents of program reviews; and sample newsletters and notice letters.
