Program Budgeting Records, 1970 - 1977

Identifier: ACC 2013-026:

Scope and Contents

Consists of supporting data and other records maintained by the South Dakota Board of Regents documenting decisions made concerning higher education program budgeting between 1970 and 1977. Many of the files pertain to the implementation of a zero-base budgeting system for physical plants and libraries at various South Dakota colleges and universities. The Board of Regents concluded that the then-current system of “base-plus budgeting” did not necessarily allocate available funds in an equitable manner; therefore, the feasibility of implementing a new zero-base system should be explored.

Records include memoranda and correspondence, Budget Advisory Committee meeting minutes, budget system proposals and feedback from institutions, audit reports, tentative budget formulas submitted by institutions, and facilities and services efficiency studies conducted by universities in other states.
