What is a statewide program?

Submitted by David Birdwell on Tue, 2016-01-05 16:17

A statewide program is a cross-cabinet, cross-agency priority for the State of Oklahoma which encourages collaborative efforts by state government to achieve identified outcomes. Each statewide program is aligned to both performance measures and financial data. When state agencies develop their budgets and account for expenses, they select one of the 52 currently identified programs or "Other."

This system of performance informed budgeting was established so progress made and dollars spent against a given statewide program can be seen in the same place at the same time, and allows for measuring progress and promoting continuous improvements in state government.
