Program A: Military Affairs

Program Authorization: R.S. 29

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Military Affairs Program was created to reinforce the Armed Forces of the United States and to be available for the security and emergency needs of the State of Louisiana. The program provides organized, trained and equipped units to execute assigned state and federal missions. Those missions are:

  1. Federal Mission: To maintain combat-ready units available to mobilize and deploy in support of National Military Strategy.
  2. State Mission: To provide for the protection of life and property and to preserve peace, order and public safety under state authorities.

The primary long-range goal of the Military Affairs Program is to acquire new units to support the force structure envisioned for this command. The overall goal is to develop a combat ready force.

 

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

 

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

This program is funded with State General Fund, Interagency Transfers, Fees and Self-generated Revenues, IEB, and Federal Funds. Interagency Transfers are received by the Division of Administration for Technology Innovations funding. The Fees and Self-generated Revenues are derived from the following: (1) receipts on the sale of timber from land owned by the Military Department, and (2) rental and other income from property owned by the Military Department. IEB funds are appropriated for various disaster assistance claims. The Federal Funds are revenues utilized by the Military Department in receiving a 75% reimbursement for all funds expended on maintenance of approved guard facilities and 100% of the cost of federal training site contract employees used during summer training exercises. Also included in the federal reimbursements are portions of certain contracts which provide for maintenance and security at Air National Guard Facilities.
