Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget4 Performance-based Budgeting Budgeting for Results $ Performance-based budgets focus on “return on investment”— that is, what do we get for our investment of state resources? ¢ Basic service level (or continuation of basic services)? ¢ Increased services (more services to same recipients or expansion of same services to more recipients)? ¢ Better (higher quality) services? ¢ More efficient services (cost savings in service delivery)? ¢ Mitigation or resolution of a problem? Budgeting for Results
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget5 Budgeting for Results— With an Eye on the Price Tag $ Performance-based budgeting emphasizes program effectiveness and bases decision making (whether for continuation or enhancement of a program) on outcomes. $ However, the costs of achieving those outcomes must be scrutinized to ensure efficient service delivery and maximize allocation of scarce resources. Budgeting for Results Performance-based Budgeting
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget6 $ A budget is a plan for receiving and spending funds; it is an allocation of anticipated resources. There are two parts to a budget: ¢ Means of Financing (what comes in); and ¢ Expenditures (what goes out). $ Budget requests must provide detailed information on both parts. ¢ Primary source of data for OPB budget analysis and recommendations ¢ Give special care to BR-6s, BR-7s, & BR-8s $ The goal of budget development is to balance these two parts. $ The goal of budget management is to keep them in balance.

Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget11 Budget Request Forms and Addenda BIGGEST CHANGE: Keeping hurricane recovery funding and expenditures separate
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget12 Budget Request Forms and Addenda Use current OPB forms Follow instructions Check summary rows and columns Check for consistency between forms Submit a complete package on time Budget Request Pointers:
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget13 Budget Request Forms and Addenda Explain, explain, explain! Data-driven, quantifiable Pertinent, concise Complete the package as if your budget depends upon it—IT DOES! Budget Request Pointers:
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget14 Budget Request Forms and Addenda OPERATIONAL PLAN (OP) An operational plan is an annual work plan. An operational plan draws directly from strategic plan to: describe agency and program missions and goals state program objectives measure progress
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget15 OP POINTERS : Use the current OP form. Follow all instructions and guidelines. Submit a complete OP on time. Cite strategic program performance objectives. Report balanced sets of indicators. Explain, explain, explain. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget16 OP POINTERS : Be clear. Avoid technical terms or jargon. If a technical term must be used, add a note to explain the term. Avoid acronyms and initializations unless first spelled out. Do not use ”NA”. To maximum extent possible, use standard definitions and generally accepted or recognized calculation methods and formulas. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget17 OP POINTERS : Be sure that indicator names and values are consistent with official sources. LaPAS Appropriation acts, approved Aug. 15th performance adjustments, and approved BA-7s Cite LaPAS PI Code for existing indicators. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget18 OP POINTERS : Be consistent in what you report and how your data are calculated. Don’t change performance indicators willy-nilly. Don’t let the OP be the first indication that you think performance changes may be justified. Talk to your OPB analyst before you undertake changes. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget19 It’s my operational plan! Why can’t I change my performance indicators whenever I want to? In your strategic plan, you identified the indicators to be used to measure progress over the lifetime of the plan. You committed to those indicators. We need to track indicators over time to see progress. So there must be a compelling reason to change indicators during the lifetime of your strategic plan. AND that reason must be communicated and justified, early in the budget development process, to all key parties. Given our post-hurricane operating environment, some changes for FY may be justified. However, other key parties— particularly OPB—must agree with you. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget20 Performance information must be provided also on: Continuation Budget Forms New or Expanded Service Forms Technical and/or Other Adjustment Package (as appropriate) Use performance indicators to describe and quantify existing services and justify workload adjustments and/or enhancements. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget21 Office of Information Technology (OIT)Forms Who must submit IT-10 requests? Departments/agencies must submit an IT-10 and a corresponding Office of Planning and Budget CB8/NE form as a justification for each Information Technology (IT) project and/or initiative request exceeding $100,000 in total cost over five years. All IT projects and/or initiatives meeting the criteria for submittal specified require the approval of OIT. Budget Request Forms and Addenda
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget22 Recent changes to the IT Request process: A tab added to IT-0 identifying all previously approved IT-10s for which funds are in the Existing operating Budget itemizing planned cost by fiscal year through final year of planned funding. A box has been added to the IT-10 form to: –Identifying the impact if the request is not funded –Affirm the department/agency budget office has reviewed the IT-10 –Affirm the department/agency undersecretary has approved the IT-10 Means of financing has been added to the cost summary section of the IT- 10 Cost worksheet Budget Request Forms and Addenda Office of Information Technology Forms
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget23 What IT expenses do not require an IT-10? –Continuation of an existing contract, multi-year lease, lease purchase, or finance agreement for equipment that has been approved by OIT through an IT Request –Hardware and software maintenance renewal contracts Object Code 2820 Maintenance of Data Processing Equipment Object Code 2825 Maintenance of Data Processing Equipment – Software –Acquisitions that were included in a previously approved IT Request (has been assigned a CIO Approval #) unless the project/initiative materially changes (i.e., change in technical approach or scope, increase in total costs by 15% or more) Budget Request Forms and Addenda Office of Information Technology Forms
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget24 ISIS/HR Data and the Budget Employees are a valuable resource. Salaries and related benefits often represent the largest operating cost for an agency. Commissioner of Administration’s memorandum of February 9, 2006, directs state agencies to ensure accuracy and timeliness of data in ISIS-HR. OPB uses ISIS/HR data to develop and monitor budgets.
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget25 ISIS/HR Data and the Budget Valuable ISIS/HR Reports: ZP22 - projects salary expenditures for the remainder of the current fiscal year ZP39 - Position/Employee Statistical Report Summarized, which reports the total number of positions, employees and FTE by salary object, as defined by ISIS/HR Personnel Subarea. Mathematically, OPB simply subtracts the total FTE for all the Table of Organization (T.O.) salary objects (2100, 2130, 5200) from the authorized T.O. to obtain the number of funded vacancies.
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget26 ISIS/HR Data and the Budget Valuable ISIS/HR Reports: ZP116 — BR9B, which: for filled positions, projects the salary and related benefits based upon the actual data of each incumbent identified by salary object; for vacant positions, selects only the vacant positions designated with the “X” in the planned vacancy field. To project salary and related benefits, it uses the midpoint of the job’s pay range associated with the position and predefined specific amounts for the employee shares of retirement, health and life insurance.
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget27 LaPAS Opens for FY st Quarter Performance Progress Reports on Monday, October 9, Set interim targets prospectively Manage targets throughout the year Targets and actuals are cumulative All data cell entries required for a particular quarter must be complete to get “complete” status Explain, explain, explain Use LaPAS user forms on the OPB website to request new user IDs and keep user contact information current.

Revision and update are required, at a minimum, every three years after submission of an initial strategic plan. (The OPB recommends an annual effort to track progress toward accomplishment of strategic goals and objectives. This annual review and evaluation may reveal the need to make a few adjustments or accommodations. However, unless extraordinary changes in internal capacity or external operating environment have occurred, it should not be necessary to overhaul or rewrite your entire strategic plan annually.) Due date for next revised and updated strategic plans is July 1, This plan will cover the period of FY through FY Strategic Planning
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget42 Strategic Plan Revision Strategic Planning Revision and update move the plan into the future. A three-year update moves the plan three years into the future. The strategic plan remains a five-year plan. Its start and end dates are moved into the future. FY FY FY FY FY FY FY FY FY Year Strategic Plan Revised 5-Year Strategic Plan
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget43 Strategic Plan Revision Strategic Planning Division of Administration guidelines must be used. Updated guidelines for revising and submitting strategic plans available on OPB website in October Training in strategic planning available through the Comprehensive Public Training Program, beginning in November Your strategic plan is a public document.

Unless your agency does not have website capability, hard copy or other electronic submission does not substitute for website publication. NOTE: If your organization does not have a website, contact the OPB regarding submission of hard copy.
Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget44 Strategic Plan Revision Strategic Planning Strategic plans must be submitted to the commissioner of administration (through the OPB) and the standing committee of each house of the legislature having responsibility for oversight of the department/agency.
