Program Authorization: La. Const. Art. IX, Sec. 7; R.S. 36: 8, 607

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Management and Finance Program is to implement sound fiscal and personnel policies and practices; manage contracts and grants; provide central procurement, computer and communication services; and perform various other internal services to meet the operational, functional, and administrative needs of the department. In addition to the foregoing typical management and finance services, the Wildlife and Fisheries Management and Finance Program provides two additional and unique services: the program conducts socioeconomic research related to wildlife and fisheries issues; and the program issues various licenses and registrations to the public. The goals of the program are, 1) to improve internal controls and compliance with all legal, financial, and operational requirements, 2) to employ the most sound management, financial, and human resource practices, 3) to maximize employee productivity department-wide and assure a quality workforce, 4) to satisfy the socioeconomic research needs or program staff and 5) to ensure availability of legally required licenses to the public. This program has one activity, Management and Finance.

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).
