Dan, I have had similar experiences with administration, using data from studies, best practices etc. only to have things cut at budget time.  I continue to use what I have learned from studies and best practices in what I do and I have seen positive results.  In our organization the budges are set by the CFO and his staff.  This has made things more difficult to get things through.  I think bean counters look at things differently than  the other administrators.  If they do not see a direct correlation of something to the bottom line, it does not make it to the budget.
