Subcommittee on Need Analysis and Delivery System. Background Paper. Phase I: Background and Problem Definition.
Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance, Washington, DC.
This paper outlines the major issues to be considered, and the tasks to be undertaken, by the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance's Subcommittee on Need Analysis and Delivery System. In particular, the subcommittee's plans to address the following three areas are described: (1) opportunities for further simplification and integration of federal need analysis and program eligibility models; (2) the feasibility of excluding certain disadvantaged subpopulations from Federal need analysis entirely and streamlining annual reapplication processes for all students; and (3) monitoring progress toward implementing simplified Federal need analysis, including an assessment of the impact of both current and future improvements on state and institutional practices and policies. Each of these three issues and the related and secondary questions within that area, is discussed in a separate section. A final section looks at translating questions into specific analysis. An appendix contains a draft format for a simplified need analysis framework. (JB)
