La. ATC implements new performance system

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC) Commissioner Troy Hebert has implemented an Agency wide performance system to promote employee accountability, eliminate waste, and ensure that the taxpayers receive the maximum return on their investment into the Agency. 

Hebert has also eliminated vehicle home storage for most of the enforcement division causing many to do what most workers do, drive their own vehicle to work.

ATC's Performance Based Services (PBS) system sets a minimum amount of work units that employees are required to complete each day. Unlike in the past, where employees' work productivity was not tracked and some produced far less than others with no accountability, this system requires certain standards that every employee must meet. Under the PBS system, employees failing to meet the minimum program standards may face disciplinary action and/or termination.

"As a result of maximizing productivity with fewer employees, ATC is projected to realize over one million dollars in savings.  In today's tough fiscal environment, adopting proven private sector strategies is a great way to assure that taxpayers are receiving their money's worth," said Hebert.
The projected one million dollar savings is substantial considering that it is nearly 15% of ATC's current $6.5 million dollar budget.

"The savings generated from the PBS system could be used to help fund healthcare, education, and other law enforcement, such as State Police," Hebert added.
