RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with General Fund and Interagency Transfers. The Interagency Transfers are from the Lieutenant Governor's Office for administration costs associated with processing federal grant records and the Office of Tourism for administrative services such as accounting, purchasing, personnel, etc.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
Work load - indirect cost of accounts payable/receivable, reconciliations, etc., relative to the Tourism Promotion District Funding cap being increased--more advertising, more billing and verifications
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 82.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 81.9% of the total request ($2,171,560) for this program. The (17.2%) decrease is due to nonrecurring funding for Phase I and Phase II of the River Oaks Square Arts Center in Shreveport and nonrecurring acquisitions and major repairs. this program does not have any positions that have been vacant for one (1) year or more. The Total Recommended amount above includes $40,000 and one (1) position of Supplementary Recommendations of which $0 is State General Fund for the increased work load due to the increase in out-of-state advertising in the Office of Tourism. Funding of this Supplementary Recommendation is dependent on renewal of the current sales tax rate of 3% on the sales tax suspension of exemptions base.
One position in other charges for the Lt. Governor's Grant Program. Manual accounting records are maintained as each grant has different award periods and accounting requirements. The Federal Inspector General performed a fiscal audit of the Delta Service Corps in FY 94-95 and commended the Department's grant accounting system.
