State of Louisiana Office of Planning and Budget (OPB)

Under Louisiana law, each state department must produce a strategic five-year plan that addresses requirements identified for the State's Master Plan. Updated every three years, this document includes all public higher education institutions. Measures must meet statutory requirements. They are used in Performance Based Budgeting through scheduled reporting to Louisiana Performance and Accountability (LaPAS). The 2011-12 to 2015-16 plan was revised July 2011 to align performance data with the GRAD Act. There was an effort in 2011 to align this strategic plan to match the goals and measures stated for the GRAD Act.

Common Data Set

The Common Data Set is a collaborative effort between the educational community and publishers such as the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. This project resulted in standardized information across educational institutions nationwide. Its purpose was to minimize the effort required to report variations of the same data over and over. CDS standards and definitions assure that accurate and consistent information is available to the public. It is an annual report that is prepared each Spring.
