OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indictors 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 entirely with State General Fund.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 125.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 117.0% of the total request ($2,752,004) for this program. The increase in the recommended level is primarily due to increased Risk Management Premiums and the annualization of the utility costs associated with the 96-bed cellblock.
