It was approved by the Academic Senate on December 8, and approved by the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska on February 3, The Academic Planning Committee promulgated this document on February 10, The premise of these procedures asserts that budget reallocations and reductions are most rationally, efficiently, and equitably accomplished as aspects of a dynamic and ongoing strategic and budgetary planning process.
Therefore, the process detailed in this document should be built on a UNL strategic plan that includes institutional goals and a vision for the future. It is also assumed that the biennial budget-making process relates the needs and priorities of the university to its resources. These procedures provide opportunities for discussion, consultation and negotiation among participants.

The participants include students, staff, faculty, department chairs and heads, unit directors, college deans, vice chancellors and the chancellor. This document reaffirms the role of the Academic Planning Committee APC in reviewing and proposing the change or elimination of programs, as outlined in University of Nebraska-Lincoln Bylaws, Sections 1.
Therefore, the process that follows was developed to maximize the likelihood of achieving an appropriate result by emphasizing the following: the need for open communication; the need for ongoing consultation among unit administrators, faculty, students and staff; the desirability for confidentiality during exploratory considerations; the need for common understandable data and information about programs; the need for time for discussion and negotiation among the various participants in the process; and the need to protect the safeguards contained in the Bylaws and Policies of the Board of Regents and the Bylaws of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with respect to faculty tenure and due process considerations.

Essential to a quality university is recognition of the importance of the faculty voice in matters of academic decision making and long-range planning. These procedures are designed to reflect that recognition; they represent sound academic practice consistent with standards set by the AAUP and other professional organizations.
Rumors and misinformation can be a deterrent to productivity. A well-conceived and generally accepted budget planning procedure involves faculty, staff and student consultation and keeps rumors and misinformation to a minimum.
Importance of Budget: Why is it important for the government to have a budget?
No notes for slide. Reforming the italian budget process: strengthening the allocation function and integrating the spending review - Aline Pennisi, Italy 1. A relevant part of expenditure still remains determined by parameters set by mandatory spending laws that can not be automatically modified through the revision of budget appropriations but require a modification of the underlying enabling law.
Since , the budget bill may contain a reallocation of ear-marked expenditure without a modification of the original enabling law, provided that it results in a zero-sum variation. The Parliament is informed through a specific table.
Thanks to the constitutional amendment the budget has already taken up a new role…. Although in recent years Italy has reinforced rules and national institutions governing fiscal conduct, the allocation function of the budget remains weak. This is due: o in part to the institutional framework, o in part to the financial programming process, o in part to the representativeness of the budget, o in part to the management process.
The use of extra-budgetary funds has increased over the years, also to allow for more flexilibility and to accelerate payments. Towards a more effective budget law …. The structure by missions and programs — being the program the Parliamentary vote unit — is confirmed, as it is best suited to highlight the link between the resources allocated and the objectives pursued. A better integration of the budget accounting data and those of the Treasury and the progressive elimination of special Treasury accounts and extra- budgetary funds constituted thanks to resources originally in the budget is foreseen in the next few years: o gradual transition through the digitalization of the payment procedures and the integration of ordinary extra-budgetary accounts into the budget accounting system o suppression of special accounts and regimes and reacquisition of their stocks to the State budget and, when this not possible, IT development of the management of the remain special accounts o adoption of harmonized classification scheme for the annual reporting of the remaining off-balance sheet operations excluded from this rationalization process o enhancement of the IT management system SICOGE with the electronic invoice, payment plan and more consistency with monthly requirement forecasts … as well as the integration between budget and Treasury accounts The spending review should be part of the budget process There have been several spending review SR initiatives in Italy, all on an ad hoc basis.
When measures were devised with the direct involvement of line Ministries, they were more effective. Moreover, integration of the SR in the budget cycle can be used to promote the reallocation of resources.
The reform aims at introducing some typical features of top-down programming and giving Ministries three-year spending targets in terms of: o reductions to be met, entailing a selective choice on how to contribute the general fiscal targets o increases to be made, on the basis of new spending initiatives that the Government is committed to achieve priorities. Further spending initiatives should in most cases be funded by Ministries on the basis of their own reallocation proposals, avoiding general requests to the Government to increase total funding.
Experience of OECD Countries with Performance Budgeting
Cash-flow planning is traditionally weak and contributes to several problematic issues: o slow payments and overdue commercial debt o at the same time, a relevant accumulation of the budget arrears More focus on the actual supply of public resources cash is sought through the following: o Improved cash planning on behalf of line Ministries o the provision that managers must prepare a calendar for payments at the moment each commitment is made o the simplification of the regulatory framework for the control procedures on revenue, with more attention on the collection rather than the obligation to the tax authorities Towards a more relevant use performance indicators More focus on the cash-basis measures is necessary Current practices have produced an overabundance of documents and data, often connected to goals that refer to management concerns and process aspects rather than to objectives of public policies.
Efforts are in place on the side of the MoF to produce a more public-oriented explanation of the contents of expenditure programs and define output and outcome indicators.
