The plans shall be policy based, priority driven, accountable, and developed through careful examination and justification of all agency and judicial branch programs.

(1)  Long-range program plans shall provide the framework for the development of budget requests and shall identify or update:

(a)  The mission of the agency or judicial branch.

(b)  The goals established to accomplish the mission.

(c)  The objectives developed to achieve state goals.

(d)  The trends and conditions relevant to the mission, goals, and objectives.

(e)  The agency or judicial branch programs that will be used to implement state policy and achieve state goals and objectives.

(f)  The program outcomes and standards to measure progress toward program objectives.

(g)  Information regarding performance measurement, which includes, but is not limited to, how data is collected, the methodology used to measure a performance indicator, the validity and reliability of a measure, the appropriateness of a measure, and whether, in the case of agencies, the agency inspector general has assessed the reliability and validity of agency performance measures, pursuant to s. 20.055(2).

(2)  Each long-range program plan shall cover a period of 5 fiscal years, be revised annually, and remain in effect until replaced or revised.

(3)  Long-range program plans or revisions shall be presented by state agencies and the judicial branch in a form, manner, and timeframe prescribed in written instructions prepared by the Executive Office of the Governor in consultation with the chairs of the legislative appropriations committees.

(4)  Each state executive agency and the judicial branch shall post their long-range program plans on their Internet websites not later than September 30th of each year, and provide written notice to the Governor and the Legislature that the plans have been posted.

(5)  Following the adoption of the annual General Appropriations Act, the state agencies and the judicial branch shall make appropriate adjustments to their long-range program plans to be consistent with the appropriations and performance measures in the General Appropriations Act and legislation implementing the General Appropriations Act. Agencies and the judicial branch have until June 30 to make adjustments to their plans as posted on their Internet websites.
