Program A: Administration

Program Authorization: Act 659 of 1983, Act 712 of 1993 and R.S. 28:380 et. seq.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration Program is to administer a service system that supports and serves individuals with developmental disabilities, including mental retardation, autism, and other conditions related to mental retardation, through the provision of residential living options and other services.

The goals of the Administration Program are:

1. Provide leadership in the field of developmental disabilities.

2. Operate a user-friendly service system.

The Administration Program is charged with the responsibility for the administration and management of Louisiana's Mental Retardation/Developmental Disabilities (MR/DD) Services System under the MR/DD Law and the Family Support Act of 1989 for persons with MR/DD and/or their families. This service system includes the nine state-operated developmental centers and their associated community homes and eight regional administrative offices. The service system provides a wide array of services including but not limited to 24-hour residential services, diagnosis and evaluation, vocational services, family support, respite services, habilitation services, infant intervention, information and referral, and case management services.

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).
