Program Authorization: R.S. 36:351
The Management and Finance Program's mission is to provide management and finance functions which include: budget and fiscal management; procurement; contracts and grants management; information processing services; program analysis and evaluation; personnel management; and administrative support services. It is the goal of this program to provide these functions in a manner which properly supports all of the other programs in the Department of Natural Resources. There is only one activity in this program: Support Services.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
The Management and Finance Program will continue to assist the offices within the Department of Natural Resources in the performance of their duties and responsibilities by providing these services: information processing, data communications, financial management services, contract and grant services, personnel services, purchasing and property services, and mail and messenger service. Performance Indicators consistent with the program's strategic plan and with the statewide model for support services programs will be reported next year.

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with General Fund Direct, Interagency Transfers, Self-generated Revenues, Statutory Dedications and Federal Funds. Interagency Transfers are comprised of funds received from the various offices within the Department of Natural Resources for support services. The Fees and Self-generated Revenues are from insurance recovery and the sale of computer information. Statutory Dedications are derived from the Oilfield Site Restoration Fund (Act 404 of 1993) and the Fisherman's Gear Compensation Fund for support services associated with these activities. (Per R.S. 39:32B. (8), see table below for a listing of expenditures out of each statutory dedicated fund.) Federal Funds are from Federal Energy Settlement Funds and the Department of Energy for support services associated with this activity.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 103.4% of the existing operating budget. It represents 94.5% of the total request ($9,754,673) for this program. The 3.4% percent increase is primarily due to attrition being restored in this program. This program does not have any positions that have been vacant for 1 year or more.
