BILL NUMBER:S2054

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to
furnishing prepared plans and reports

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation would require state
agencies to furnish to the legislature and governor any strategic
plans or performance reports prepared during the prior fiscal year.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The New York state finance law is
amended by adding a new section 14-c to require the head of each state
agency, on or before October 15th of each year, to furnish to the
governor and legislative fiscal committees any strategic plans and
performance reports prepared by the state agency during the prior
fiscal year. For the purpose of this section "state agency" shall mean
any state department, state university of New York, city university of
New York, board, bureau, division, commission, committee, office or
other governmental entity performing a governmental or proprietary
function for the state, or any combination thereof from the schedule
listing such agencies as provided for in subdivision two of section
nine hundred fifty-one of the executive law, except any public
authority or benefit corporation, the judiciary or the state
legislature.

EXISTING LAW: New York State Finance Law is being amended by adding a
new Section known as § 14-c that will insure that reports or plans
written and developed by New York State Agencies will be distributed
to all three branches of government.

JUSTIFICATION: Implementing performance indicators facilitates better
discussion among legislators, the public, and agencies about what is
working and what is not regarding state programs and policies.
Performance measurement can provide useful information about how well
services are provided, whether targets are being met, and generally
assist in the examination and modification of agency programs.
Furthermore, done alongside the management methodology of strategic
planning, both strategic planning and performance measurement form a
continuous process of setting out missions, goals, objectives, and
strategies for attaining desired results (i.e., strategic planning),
and measuring the accomplishments and determining if the plans arc
reaching their targets (i.e., performance measurement). Some agencies
have started to employ these techniques. To ensure the legislature and
governor are receiving all state government entities' strategic plans
and performance reports, legislation follows to require any plans and
reports to be submitted to the legislature
