Performance Accountability

Performance accountability measures progress and results.

Building in accountability during the strategic planning and policy development processes enables an organization to measure progress toward accomplishment of desired results. Accountability involves regular monitoring and periodic review and evaluation of policies, plans, and programs. It examines the extent to which strategies have been implemented, compares actual with expected results, and identifies reasons for and magnitudes of differences between actual and expected results.

Louisiana's Executive Branch departments and agencies are required to submit quarterly performance reports through the Louisiana Performance Accountability System (LaPAS). LaPAS compares actual performance with annual performance standards and quarterly interim targets and calculates variances. Variances greater than 5% must be explained by reporting entities. A range of performance-based rewards and penalties has been established, including the Exceptional Performance and Efficiency Incentive Program.

Agency performance standards and actual performance reports are open to public view through the LaPAS View function on the LaPAS homepage.
