Performance Audit of the Department of Banking and Finance's Strategic Planning, Budgeting, and Performance Reporting Systems , Report No. 12316, June 1994

  • The Department of Banking and Finance has not effectively linked its planning, budgeting, and performance reporting systems. It has not established measurable objectives in its Agency Strategic Plan against which progress could be assessed and has not developed outcome measures for use in assessing its achievement of planned objectives.
  • Even if the Department had developed measurable objectives and outcome measures as required by the Executive Office of the Governor's planning and budgeting instructions, there are factors outside the Department's control that still would not have allowed it to effectively integrate its planning, budgeting, and reporting systems. As a result, the Legislature, the Governor's Office, and Department management are not able to assess what progress the Department has made toward attaining planned objectives at its present level of funding.
  • Factors outside the Department's control contribute to this situation:
  • Requirements for linking planning, budgeting, and reporting systems in the Florida Statutes and the planning and budgeting instructions are weak;
  • Performance measures included in agency legislative budget requests are not tied to requests for funding or to agency strategic plan objectives; and
  • Budget entities are usually organizational units rather than programs.
