David Helpap, assistant professor of political science and public administration, recently had the manuscript “Guiding the Public Sector: Assessing the Use of Recommended Practices in the Budgeting Process” accepted for publication by the International Journal of Public Administration. Using an original survey of local budgeting officials across the United States, the study examines the correlation between current budgeting practices and established, recommended practices. While a significant number of current practices closely match those that have been recommended, notable variations were uncovered.
