Program A: Management and Finance

Program Authorization: Act 230 of 1979; Act 390 of 1991

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Management and Finance Program is to provide both quality and timely leadership and support to the various offices and programs in the Department of Health and Hospitals so that their functions and mandates can be carried out in an efficient and effective manner.

The goal of the Management and Finance Program is to provide overall direction and administrative support to the Department.

 

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

The Management and Finance Program is funded from General Fund, Interagency Transfers, Fees and Self-generated Revenue, and Federal Funds. Interagency transfer means of financing represents funds received from the Department of Education and the Office of Public Health for operation of the Disability Information Access Line (DIAL). Fees and Self-generated Revenues include payments from patients for services based on a sliding fee scale and miscellaneous income, such as funds received from the sale of document copies. The Federal Funds derive from the Developmental Disabilities Grant and the Primary Care Grant.
