Program A: Administrative

Program Authorization: Section 16, Article XIV of La. State Constitution of 1974

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administrative Program in the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District is to provide for the operation of the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District through funding for Superdome operation, a management fee to Louisiana Facilities Management, and the Saints Incentive Payment Schedule.

The goals of the Administrative Program in the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District are:

1. Ensure lower General Fund cost for operating the Superdome facility.

2. Provide economic benefits to the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana.

The source of funding is (1) fees and self-generated revenues derived from event rentals, admissions, concessions, parking and advertising, and (2) surplus from the hotel/motel tax collection.

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

The source of funding is State General Fund and Fees and Self-generated Revenues. The Fees and Self-generated Revenues are derived from the 4% hotel/motel occupancy tax collected in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes and from event rentals, admissions, concessions, parking and advertising.
