Consistent with the Government Performance and Results Act, the 2005 budget proposes to streamline the decision unit structure of DOJ components to align more closely with the mission and strategic objectives contained in the DOJ Strategic Plan (2003-2008).  In addition, the budget has been realigned to reflect each component's outputs and full costs by major program activity, including the costs of management and administration, so that a more accurate picture of total activity costs is reflected in the budget.  In this way, budget and performance are more closely linked, and provide a better basis on which to make budget decisions.  Over time, agencies will be expected to identify effective outcome measures, monitor their progress, and accurately present the associated costs.

  As part of its effort to realign resources to the DOJ Strategic Plan, the 2005 budget proposes to move funding for programs funded under the State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance appropriation to the Office of Justice Programs' Justice Assistance appropriation.  In 2005, OJP has realigned its management and administration funding to reflect the full cost, both administrative and programmatic, of each OJP program.  In order to achieve this, OJP's management and administration resources were redistributed among all OJP programs so that the budgeted administrative costs for each program were more closely aligned with actual administrative costs.  As in the past, amounts shown for OJP's State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance include management and administration costs.  The table below shows the funding level requested for State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Programs under the Justice Assistance (JA) appropriation.
