Moreover, the study investigates if there are forms of association between the size of universities and the quality of the plans produced. It was found a significant level of compliance of the performance plans with the guideline provided by the Italian Ministry. However, it is weak with reference to the economic and financial programming and budget. Finally, no association between the size of universities and their ability to fulfil regulations was found.
