Program A: Office of the Secretary

Program Authorization: R.S. 36:501, 504

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of this program is to provide administrative direction and accountability for all programs under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), and to provide related communications between the department and other agencies of the government, the transportation industry, and the general public. The program is necessary in order to assure an adequate infrastructure network of transportation facilities to provide for the efficient and safe movement of people and goods; as well as management of Louisiana's water resources to protect the state's property. The goal of this program is to provide the level of administrative direction and leadership to ensure the success of subordinate programs. This program has only one activity, 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).
