 To
formulate
a
good
decision
regarding
the
budget
cut
to
UC,
the
analysis
of
the
decision
should
 bounded
to
strategic‐level.

The
decision
boundary
has
been
very
well
controlled
in
this
case.

 First,
the
UC
budget
cut
decision
did
not
include
considerations
for
policy‐level
decisions.

Even
 though
policy‐level
decisions
such
as
additional
funding
through
issuance
of
Economic
Recovery
 Bond
has
been
included
in
the
final
enacted
budget,
this
decision
is
not
confined
specifically
to
 the
UC
budget
cut
but
rather
directed
to
the
overall
state‐level
policy
(Schwarzenegger,
May
 Revision
2008‐09,
Governor's
Budget,
2008).

Another
potential
policy‐level
decision
surfaced
is
 the
transition
of
UC
from
a
public
university
to
a
“public‐private
partnership”
(Newfield,
2008).

 This
is
not
an
explicit
decision
made,
but
rather
an
implicit
effect
suggested
by
the
UC
officials
 and
therefore
does
not
affect
the
scope
of
the
decision.

Second,
the
Governor
explicit
proposed
 that
approximately
90%
of
the
budget
cut
to
UC
to
be
unallocated
and
left
to
the
UC
system
to
 determine
the
exact
allocation
of
the
budget
reduction
(Schwarzenegger,
State
Budget
2008‐09,
 2008).

This
unallocated
budget
cut
left
the
UC
system
to
workout
the
detail
at
the
tactical
level,
 and
limits...
