Program A: Louisiana Property Assistance

Program Authorization: R.S. 39:322-328, 330-332, 361, 361-364

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Louisiana Property Assistance Program (LPAA) is to provide for the accountability of the state's moveable property.

The goal of the Louisiana Property Assistance Program is to provide an accurate accounting of the state’s moveable property.

The responsibilities of the LPAA include: (a) reviewing certifications of annual physical inventories; (b) auditing all state agencies for compliance with state property and fleet regulations; (c) collecting the state's surplus moveable property and redistributing it to state agencies, eligible organizations, and individuals through public auctions; and (d) tracking statewide vehicle usage, approving purchase of replacement vehicles, and administering a statewide vehicle maintenance contract.

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).

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 99.0% of the existing operating budget. It represents 86.6% of the total request ($3,477,414) for this program. The decreased recommended funding from existing operating budget is primarily due to nonrecurring acquisitions. All applicable statewide policy adjustments have been applied to this program. The major differences between total request and total recommended are due to certain statewide policy adjustments - not funding inflation costs ($40,152), applying a two percent attrition factor ($25,011), reducing Other Charges category by $86,291 to fully fund salaries and associated related benefits, and not funding the scheduled 27th payperiod ($48,690). The recommended funding level should enable this agency to continue to provide cost effective services in the areas of property procurement, liquidation and replacement; inventory maintenance; and fleet management to its customer agencies.
