Program A: Administration and Support

Program Authorization: R.S. 15:574.2-15:574.20 and R.S. 36:401-409

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration and Support Program is to provide management directions, guidance, and coordination as well as to provide the administrative support services necessary for all operational needs.

The goal of the Administration and Support Program is to continue to provide for administration and leadership on a statewide level for services rendered to adult jurisdictional courts, the Boards of Parole and Pardon, and the Interstate Compact states.

To carry out its mission, the Administration and Support Program provides quality administration, policy development, financial management, and leadership. To increase efficiency and effectiveness, policies and procedures are reviewed in order to standardize processes to the extent possible. This change required development by the Administration and Support Program of the necessary documents and procedures to guide the process. Appropriate staffing standards and formulas are developed and implemented; workloads are monitored and compared to statutory workload limits. Priority is placed on the hearing of parole and probation revocation cases in an expeditious manner.

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).
