Toward the Study of Functional Linkages in Statewide Agencies for Higher Education. ASHE 1985 Annual Meeting Paper.
Westphal, Nancy Jo
Differences among statewide coordinating boards/agencies and consolidated governing boards/agencies in level of authority for budgeting, program review/approval, and planning for public senior institutions were studied. The potential for effective linkage or integration of these activities was also explored. Forty-five state agencies completed questionnaires, which covered the agency's type of budgetary authority (i.e., statutory, policy-based, or no involvement). Level of involvement in the budget process was measured in four ways: recommending and allocating the consolidated budget, recommending but not allocating the budget, reviewing and recommending, or no involvement. It was found that, in general, consolidated governing boards exhibited greater potential for effective linkages/integration of functional responsibilities than did coordinating boards/agencies. For both types of agencies, there did not appear to be much potential for effectively linking authority for existing program review/approval to other functional responsibilities. For each state, information is provided on whether it has a consolidated governing board, coordinating board, or 1202 Commission; as well as the name of each state's board/agency. (SW)
