Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis
Ron Abraham, Advisor
I have proposed in my thesis that this deficit, and some of the extreme financial problems in the state of Iowa, can be explained and solved, in part, by a study of and improvement on inefficiency in the state's budget -process and procedure. I have focused on a number of problems that exist in the budget process and have examined them from both an analytical and a practical/social approach.
The body of my thesis will focus on the following three areas:
The process involved in developing the Iowa state Budget.
The problems and inefficiency associated with the budget and how they have harmed the financial well-being of the state.
Possibilities for solutions and actions that need to be addressed for a more efficient and effective process.
