LA Rev Stat § 39:87.2 What's This?

§87.2. Performance data; rewards and penalties; modifications to data

A. The legislature may annually specify any reward or penalty as provided in R.S. 39:87.4 for any executive branch agency which receives an appropriation. Such reward or penalty provisions as have been recommended to the legislature by committee resolution adopted by the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget or a subcommittee thereof, hereinafter the "committee", may be included in an appropriation bill, or any legislative instrument specially introduced for such purpose; or such reward or penalty may be effectuated by adoption of a committee resolution as authorized by R.S. 24:655(B).

B. Key objectives, key performance indicators, and the performance standards for such key performance indicators which are contained in the General Appropriation Act, Ancillary Appropriation Act, or any other appropriation act through which an executive branch agency receives an appropriation, shall be included in the agency's appropriation. However, in each fiscal year any key objectives and key performance indicators recommended in the executive budget for an agency which are not contained in an appropriation act shall be designated as supporting objectives and supporting performance indicators for that fiscal year. The availability of funds appropriated shall be conditioned upon each agency's compliance with the provisions of R.S. 39:87.3, relative to reporting of performance.

C.(1) In order to ensure adoption of the most accurate expectations of agency performance within the state budget, performance data contained in the adopted budget may be adjusted at the beginning of the fiscal year.

(2)(a) No later than August fifteenth, an agency may submit to the division of administration and the committee requested adjustments to its objectives, performance indicators, and performance standards. Such requested adjustments shall be subject to review and approval by both the division of administration and the committee. Each requested adjustment must be accompanied by a full written justification and shall be limited to the following:

(i) Adjustment of key and supporting objectives, performance indicators, and performance standards only as required to adjust for changes made in the appropriation bill containing the appropriation for the agency after introduction of the bill.

(ii) Adjustment of supporting objectives, performance indicators, and performance standards as contained in the executive budget supporting document only to correct technical errors.

(iii) Adjustment of key or supporting objectives, performance indicators, and performance standards to incorporate the impact of legislation enacted during the most recent regular session or an extraordinary session occurring after the regular session, or to incorporate the impact of any change in federal rule, regulation, or law which became effective no earlier than one month prior to submission of the executive budget.

(b) No later than September first, the division of administration may submit recommendations to the committee requesting adjustments to the objectives, performance indicators, and performance standards of any executive branch agency. Such requested adjustments shall be subject to review and approval by the committee.

(c) The committee may consider and approve any other adjustments to the objectives, performance indicators, and performance standards of any executive branch agency as it deems appropriate taking into consideration the agency's enacted budget and current law.

(3) The division of administration shall maintain the official record of adjustments to the performance standards as part of the agency's approved operating budget.
