Unified Budget Recommendation, 1997-98.
Alabama State Commission on Higher Education, Montgomery.
This report presents recommendations for a Unified Higher Education Budget for Alabama for fiscal year 1997-98. The Alabama Commission on Higher Education presents two sets of funding recommendations for all higher education for fiscal year 1997-98. The first is a statement of the Commission's estimate of basic financial requirements to provide regionally competitive education for the residents of Alabama. The second, identified as the 1997-98 Recommendation, is predicated on provision of an additional 6.8 percent increase from the Education Trust Fund, providing a funding level of $966,959,069. This would provide relief to institutions from the 7.5 percent reduction of 1995-96 and level funding of 1996-97. Detailed tables present the recommended amounts for each institution of higher education, the 1995-96 and 1996-97 appropriations, and regional standards and recommendations for 1997-98. Subsequent sections of the report describe: (1) funding formulas used in arriving at recommended levels of funding, (2) basic data elements and the derived statistics which are inputs to the formulas used in determining regional standards, (3) historic time-series of student headcount and full-time equivalents for public two-year institutions of higher education, and (4) critical capital funding needs.
