The following information is excerpted from the "Performance Agreements Guidelines and Procedures" document on the Kansas Board of Regents' website.
Senate Bill 647 brings "Performance-based Funding" to Kansas public postsecondary education in the form of Performance Agreements. As conceptualized by the Performance Agreements Task Force, the Performance Agreement Project will move forward on two levels simultaneously.
- The Institutional Level: Each institution will negotiate a Performance Agreement with the Board; the degree of compliance with this agreement will determine the proportion of new funding available to the institution. (See the Funding Statement in Appendix One.)
- The System Level: The Performance Agreement project will provide a means of monitoring the System of higher education in Kansas; a System report will communicate the "State of the System" to the Kansas Legislature.
