The Montana University System is engaged in the process of exploring and developing performance funding models to be included as an additional component in the allocation methodology for distributing state appropriations to the MUS campuses.
The process has been split into two phases, 1) a short-term pilot phase directed at the allocation of funds specifically for FY 2015, and 2) a second phase aimed at developing a performance funding model to be used on a longer-term basis.
This second phase will occur during the 2013-14 academic year, whereby the MUS will engage faculty and staff throughout the system in an effort to fully develop a performance funding model. A Performance Funding Steering Committee has been appointed to provide oversight and direction of this process.
