Program B: Management and Finance

Program Authorization: R.S. 36:351

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Management and Finance Program's mission is to be responsible for the timely and cost effective administration of accounting and budget control, procurement and contract management, data processing, management and program analysis, personnel management, and grants management to assure compliance with state and federal laws and assure that the Department’s offices have the resources to accomplish their program missions. It is the goal of this program to optimize the use of funding to provide functions in a manner which properly supports all of the other programs in the Department of Natural Resources. There is only one activity in this program: Support 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).

 

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

This program is funded with Interagency Transfers, Self-generated Revenues, Statutory Dedications and Federal Funds. Interagency Transfers are comprised of funds received from the various offices within the Department of Natural Resources for support services. The Fees and Self-generated Revenues are from insurance recovery and the sale of computer information. Statutory Dedications are derived from the Oilfield Site Restoration Fund (Act 404 of 1993) and the Fisherman's Gear Compensation Fund for support services associated with these activities. (Per R.S. 39:32B. (8), see table below for a listing of expenditures out of each statutory dedicated fund.) Federal Funds are from Federal Energy Settlement Funds and the Department of Energy for support services associated with this activity.
