Program Authorization: Act 659 of 1983; and R.S. 28:380 et. seq.
The mission of the Administration Program is to provide support services and effective direction to the Office of Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
The goal of the Administration Program is to provide oversight of alcohol and drug abuse diagnosis, training, education, treatment, and prevention services to the citizens of Louisiana.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
The Administration Program provides leadership and support services to the Office of Alcohol and Drug Abuse. The success of this program is reflected in the success of other programs in the Office. Performance information consistent with this program's strategic plan and with the statewide model for administration and support services will be reported next year.
SOURCE OF FUNDING
The Administration Program is funded with state general fund, interagency transfers and federal funds. Interagency transfer means of financing represents Title XIX reimbursement for services provided to indigent citizens who are eligible for Medicaid through the Department of Health and Hospitals, Medical Vendor Payments program. Federal funds represent substance abuse block grant.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 106.0% of the existing operating budget. It represents 81.8% of the total request ($2,254,650) for this program. The major changes reflected in the analysis of recommendation include: full funding has been provided for all 22 recommended positions resulting in a net increase of $544 in general fund to fully fund salaries and related benefits and an adjustment to reflect an anticipated attrition factor of 2%; net reduction of $33,022 ($61,665 in general fund reduction and $28,556 federal fund increase) for non-recurring expenses including acquisitions and major repairs; and $135,819 increased federal funding for administrative functions due to increases in Federal Block Grant for the Federal Fiscal Year 1998.
