A Review of the Higher Education Performance Funding Process
June 2001

FOLLOW-UP (PDF)     REPORT (PDF)     SUMMARY (PDF)

Members of the General Assembly requested that the Legislative Audit Council review the higher education performance funding process. We focused on the Commission on Higher Education’s (CHE’s) implementation of Act 359, enacted in 1996, which required the CHE to develop a funding formula based on performance. The act established 9 critical success factors and 37 indicators that could be used to measure an institution’s performance.
