National Universities in Taiwan is placed under the Ministry of Education organization chart. In the early stage, regulations regarding its budget and personnel allocation are no difference to other administration offices. However, on top of the competition of higher education around the globe, and aggravated by a staggering birth rate downward spiral, a new budget system, called “School Fund System (SFS)”, has been implemented since 1998. SFS serves as a flexible and diverse means not only for financing but also for recruiting contract employees to combat all sorts of challenges from all fronts. As a result of the implementation of SFS, the total number of contract employees has exceeded the government employees, and contract employees have become the main manpower for the administration work in every aspect.
In this thesis, a case study has been conducted to introduce a performance evaluation mechanism widely accepted by the industry sector to the contract employees in a national university. The purpose of this study is to investigate the three crucial factors in order to help the university with a sustainable development in the future: a reasonable allocation of administration manpower, the ceiling of personnel budget administered, and an optimal ratio between government employee and contract employee. Three approaches are adopted in this study: evidence-based management, incentive program, and salary design, to carefully examine the following three types of data: the evolution of the personnel management regulations, structure of administrative manpower, and available personnel budget data.
Main conclusion of this study is: the target university in this study has had a well design of its incentive program, and by following the rules designed in the program to the letter, the goal of inspiring contract employees is achievable. However, there is an important message for the target university to pay special attention to, that is, its annual personnel budget is far below the actual spending, indicating that personnel quota, especially that of contract employees, is way out of control.
