The goals of the Administrative Program are:

The Administrative Program includes the following activities: the Executive Office of the Attorney General, the First Assistant Attorney General, and the Administrative Services Division.

The Administrative Services Division activity is responsible for the coordination of the department's budget and legislative and departmental planning, and provides general services to the department by coordinating professional services contracts, intra/interoffice mail distribution, employee training and development, and other administrative services for the efficient management of the department. The division is currently divided into seven sections: Finance; Human Resources/Payroll; Purchasing; Property Control and Telecommunications; Management Information Systems; Governmental; and Drug Policy.

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).
