Strategic Goal By FY2015, mandated fixed contributions to the State of Arizona will be less than 20% of total General Fund operating revenues, a reduction of 11.9% from the FY2010 level.
Trend over time:
Why this is Important:
Reducing the mandated fixed contributions that the County makes to the States will allow the County more control over its own budget and ability to maintain fiscal stability and strength.
How progress is measured:
Percent of general fund mandated fixed "contributions" to the state of Arizona
Where we are:
Current indicator value (FY2011): 18.6%
In FY2011, the actual mandated state contributions reflected as a percent of the General Fund Operating revenue decreased significantly to 18.6%; however, that amount is not sustainable since it was the result of a one-time offset of $55.6 million to the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) contribution from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding. Had that not been a factor, the percentage would have increased to 23.1% of actual General Fund Operating revenue. In FY2012, the mandated state contributions reflected as a percent of the General Fund Operating revenue will increase to 23.9% due to two factors; the decline in General Fund Operating revenue and the increase in the contribution amount.
