PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Executive and Administrative Support Program is to provide program planning, leadership, efficient and economical deployment of resources, and the monitoring and enhancement of service delivery within Louisiana Rehabilitation Services (LRS).

The Executive and Administrative Support Program tracks, complies, and analyzes data relative to both fiscal and program accountability; makes changes as required; and insures ongoing quality of service delivery.

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.
