Report Sent to Kansas Legislative Research Department

Submitted by Daryl Buchholz

Daryl Buchholz

My thanks to each of you for putting forth information to help populate data tables and to provide ideas and guidance on the impacts of the work you do for the people of Kansas through K-State Research and Extension.

As you recall, the Kansas Legislative Research Department forwarded 5 questions to Kansas State University through our government relations director, Dr. Sue Peterson, on about January 17, 2016. Those 5 questions were:

1) “Employee count by county or office (group)”
2) “Number of public presentations made for the public by each county or group office”
3) “Number of 4-H groups”
4) “Population of 4-H groups over the last three years”
5) “Overall calculated benefit to the counties from the services provided by the offices”

Follow this link to the final report. The report attempts to respond to each of the questions, as best we could. As you look through the overall calculated benefit section, please note that we have provided a very few examples. We also included the 2016 K-State Research and Extension Annual Report that has been provided to Kansas legislators already to remind of the impacts contained within it.

Would love to have more and more examples, and I’d encourage you to pass those to Laurie Chandler, lchandle@ksu.edu. We will work to follow-up to add to our database of impacts. Note that all impacts are NOT economic, and that we need all kinds of impacts that may or may not result in an economic value per se.

Thanks again for your help in bringing this report together on very short notice.

Have a great week!
