Review of the Community College System's Performance-Based Program Budgeting Measures and Incentive Fund. Report 97-49.
Florida State Legislature, Tallahassee. Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability.
This report addresses the Florida Community College System's (FCCS) performance based on measures established by the General Appropriations Act. Discussed are: (1) FCCS' performance on the measures used in the performance-based budgeting (PBB) incentive fund; (2) improvements that can be made to the PBB incentive fund; and (3) changes to community college PBB that would provide better information on systemwide performance. FCCS' performance-based budgeting approach differs from other approaches used in Florida by directly linking community college performance to a portion of state funding. Specifically, this approach awards points to the community colleges based on a number of output and outcome indicators. Community colleges then receive a portion of the incentive funds based on the number of points they accrue. Results for the 1996-97 performance-based budgeting incentive fund measures suggest that FCCS gained efficiency in its degree and certificate programs. Appended are: data tables that illustrate how the current effectiveness and improvement awards could be calculated; and a response to the report from the Florida State Board of Community Colleges.
