little is done to streamline these processes. Even when large amounts of money are
invested in new financial software, the solutions are usually put in place based on
the old, inefficient routines.

budget processes, and how budgeting and policy-making are linked in state
budget offices. Except for a few important attempts in the early 1960s, very
little is written about state budget office activities, which is surprising given
their crucial position at the nexus of budgeting and policy-making in many
Bryan Singler is evaluating results for three separate business segments under his control. Selected financial information for each segment follows: Rank order the three segments based on “margin,” “turnover,” and “return on investment.” How is it possible that the rankings differ based on which evaluative model is used?
