The Exceptional Performance and Efficiency Incentive Program was established under Louisiana Revised Statutes 39:87.5 as part of the Louisiana Government Performance and Accountability Act.
Under this program, the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget determines which agencies receive a reward from monies appropriated each year from the Incentive Fund (a special treasury fund established for the purpose of providing rewards to state agencies and employees). The committee's Performance Review Subcommittee conducts committee responsibilities with respect this initiative.
Proposals are due on November 15th. Those verified by the Legislative Auditor to be factually accurate are considered by the subcommittee for determination whether a reward is in order. They are judged on factual and qualitative bases. Rewards granted by the subcommittee must be awarded prior to March 1st.
