The Technical Incentive Funding Model Task Force established by the Legislature in the 2013-15 biennial operating budget will begin its work next week in Seattle.
Focused on the four-year, public higher education sector the Task Force will focus on developing an incentive funding model to provide new incentives for Washington’s public baccalaureate sector that demonstrate improvement in existing performance measures and control resident undergraduate tuition growth.
The focus of the first of five meetings will be to set the context for this discussion. Among the key questions that will drive the conversation are:
- What’s the role for public four-year institutions in Washington?
- What are the changes facing these institutions?
- What is the role of performance funding within this context?
