PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Claims Losses and Related Payments Program in the Office of Risk Management is to minimize losses and achieve financial stability.

The goal of the Claims Losses and Related Program in the Office of Risk Management is to budget a sufficient amount of funds to pay all claims losses, adjusting expenses and excess insurance costs.

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).
