Illinois. Dept. of Public Health--Appropriations and expenditures
The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship of fiscal appropriations and their effect upon program administration in the Illinois Department of Public Health. This was done to determine if financial resources change as program activities Increase or decrease. Personnel resources are directly related to the appropriation and effect accomplishment of the program activities. The goals and purposes of the agency had to be determined and their associated functions and activities. This was accomplished by a review of Annual Reports, Biennial Plans, Revised Statutes, and conducting interviews with program administrators in the Department. Resources available to the agency were determined by a review of reports made available by the Department of Finance. The conclusion drawn from this study was that total appropriations are increasing as activities increase; however, the absence of flexibility in fund transfer places limitations upon effective program administration directed toward achievement of the long range goals.
