Interview SummaryIn this twenty-fourth interview session, A.D. Albright talks about university budgeting. He explains the role of "suspense accounts," which are special parts of the budget set up to cover withholding taxes. He states that it is called a "suspense account," because the university always wonders if they are going to make the expenses. Albright discusses contingency funds which are for non-recurring emergency expenses or non-recurring expenditure items. Albright also describes similarities between the problems of universities and governments. He explains what problems may result if a university library system reports to an entity outside of the academic system of the institution. He discusses the need to revamp public education and describes how average students are often overlooked at a university like UK.
