Full report in PDF format

  • The Legislature implemented our recommendation to suspend the annual client outcomes and program effectiveness reporting requirements in s. 20.19(19), F.S., by substituting the performance-based budget reporting requirements of the Government Performance and Accountability Act.
  • The Department of Children and Families submitted a performance-based budget for its Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health programs for fiscal year 1997-98 and will submit performance-based budgets for the remainder of its programs for fiscal year 1998­99. In addition, the Department continues to work on developing an Information Delivery System to support its performance-based budget activities.
  • The Legislature has not yet decided when the Department of Health is to submit its first performance-based budget.
