Program Authorization: R.S. 36:501, 504
The mission of this program is to provide administrative direction and accountability for all programs under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), and to provide related communications between the department and other agencies of the government, the transportation industry, and the general public. The program is necessary in order to assure an adequate infrastructure network of transportation facilities to provide for the efficient and safe movement of people and goods; as well as management of Louisiana's water resources to protect the state's property. The goal of this program is to provide the level of administrative direction which will ensure the DOTD programs are managed so as to provide the optimum benefits and services to the public within the constraints of available funding and applicable regulations. This program has only one activity, Administration.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
The Administration Program provides leadership to the Department of Transportation and Development. The success of this program is reflected in the success of other programs in the department. 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 Statutory Dedications of the Transportation Trust Fund-Regular. Statutory Dedications are funded by taxes collected on the sale of motor fuels and vehicle licenses. (Per R.S. 39:32B. (8), see table below for a listing of expenditures out of each statutory dedicated fund.)
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 81% of the existing operating budget. It represents 88% of the total request ($603,852) for this program. The major change reflects a decrease of $85,000 that was non-recurred for the Zachary Taylor Parkway Commission which was not requested by DOTD. In addition, insurance premiums billed by the Office of Risk Management were reduced. The Personnel Reductions are due to positions that were vacant 1 year or more.
