Program Authorization: R.S. 46:931
The mission of the Administrative Program is to oversee the management of and provide training to this office and the aging network on program reporting, contract management, board training, and accounting and budgeting procedures.
The goal of the Administrative Program is to provide most effective and efficient administrative functions necessary to enable the Office of Elderly Affairs (OEA) to carry out its programs.
This program consists of three activities: Administrative, Adult Protective Services, and Long-Term Care Assistance.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
The Administrative Program provides leadership to the Office of Elderly Affairs. The success of this program is reflected in the success of the other programs in the office. Performance information consistent with this program's strategic plan and with the statewide model for administration/support service programs will be reported next year.

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with state general fund, fees and self-generated revenues and federal funds. Fees and self-generated revenues are derived from insurance recovery. Federal funds are derived from Title III, Older Americans Act of 1965 for administrative costs.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 99.4% of the existing operating budget. It represents 93.4% of the total request ($10,649,445) for this program. The net decrease over existing operating budget is primarily due to the reductions adjustment in order to fully fund salaries.
