Program A: Administration and Support

Program Authorization: R.S. 36:258(E); R.S. 28:1-723; and Act 571 of the 1992 Regular Session

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration and Support Program is to manage and support the statewide provision of a comprehensive array of mental health services which are delivered through an integrated system of directly operated and contracted community and inpatient hospital programs which form the Mental Health System.

The goal of the Administration and Support Program is to provide administrative direction for the implementation of programs within the divisions of community-based services, hospital services, planning development and evaluation services for the community and hospital components of the Mental Health System, and finally the education of the staff within the entire mental health system.

The Administration and Support Program consists of three divisions: community services; inpatient services; and program planning, development and evaluation. Both the community and planning/development divisions are further divided into child/youth and adult bureaus. State office program managers have responsibility for statewide development and management of children’s services, adult services, acute inpatient units, state psychiatric hospitals, state plan development and monitoring, and research and evaluation. In addition to the programmatic divisions, the support activities of human resources, fiscal management, and information technology services are also a part of the OMH headquarters’ staff.

 

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

The Administration and Support Program is funded with General Fund and Federal Funds. Federal funds are derived from a two year federal grant awarded to improve the planning and decision making by integrating administrative data bases.

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 106.4% of the Existing Operating Budget. It represents 75.0% of the Total Request ($5,449,741). The major changes include an increase of $304,734 to fully fund salaries, a reduction of $70,912 for acquisitons and major repairs, and an increase of 8 positions transferred from the Community Mental Health Program. The changes should have no significant impact on the delivery of these services.
