PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administrative Program is to provide the leadership, support, and oversight necessary to be responsible for and manage, direct, and ensure the effective and efficient operation of the programs within the Department of the Treasury, Office of State Treasurer, to the benefit of the public's interest.

The goals of the Administrative Program are:

  1. Effectively manage through policy development, communication, and dissemination of information, the provision of legal services and support, and the overall coordination of all programs in the Department of Treasury, Office of State Treasurer.
  2. Promote sound cash management programs that benefit the taxpayers of the State of Louisiana.

The Administrative Program provides the administration and control of the affairs of the department for the purpose of fulfilling the powers and duties of the state treasurer.

The state treasurer is responsible for managing in excess of $12 billion for revenue collections and expenditures. The state treasurer maintains portfolios with an average daily investment of over $2.85 billion and generates an estimated $144.2 million in investment earnings. The state treasurer pays $218 million towards debt service on approximately $2.7 billion of outstanding debt; manages $200 million annually in general obligation debt and provides oversight on $393 million in loans by local government as well as authorizes new debt that averages $1.5 billion annually for local government.

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).
