Faculty note: Helpap presentation

Political Scientist David Helpap, assistant professor of Public and Environmental Affiairs, recently presented the paper “Explaining the Use of Recommended Practices and Guidelines: The Case of Public Budgeting” at the American Society for Public Administration Annual Conference in Washington D.C. (March 14-18). The paper demonstrates why the current practices of certain local governments correspond to those developed and promoted by professional organizations, and others do not. The paper also was accepted for publication in Public Administration Quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to topics in public administration.
