TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Board of Regents will form a group to study the logistics of basing budgets for the state’s universities and colleges at least partly on performance.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1qmul57 ) performance-based budgeting ties some a portion of post-secondary institutions’ funding to their meeting specific goals. The key is determining what the goals are, how to measure performance and the amount of funding involved.

Kansas Board of Regents President and CEO Andy Tompkins and Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz said last week they hoped performance-based budgeting would allow post-secondary institutions to earn more funding than they currently receive from the state.

Critics say performance-based budgeting has caused problems in other states and could be used to reduce funding.
