Program A: Administration

Program Authorization: R.S. 36:4; 36:301; 51:1252

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration Program is to coordinate the efforts and initiatives of the other programs in the Office of Tourism with the advertising agency, other agencies in the department and other public and private travel industry partners. The goal of the Administration Program is to derive the maximum return on investment from funds invested in tourism advertising and promotion. There is one activity in this program: Administration.

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 Fees and Self-generated Revenues which are derived from the Louisiana Tourism Promotion District. Act 1038 of the 1990 Regular Session of the Legislature created the Louisiana Tourism Promotion District which receives 3/100 of 1 cent of the sales and use tax. These proceeds are then transferred to the Office of Tourism for out-of-state advertising, and promoting tourism in Louisiana.
