This study aims to emphasize how performance indicators can be improved by implementing an appropriate management. The counterbalance of a poor funding from the state budget for a program can be achieved by using the levers of the management process functions, particularly referring to the planning and organization. The comparative method of the research data is applied to the institutional performance indicators obtained for four consecutive years. The analysis of the results obtained in the study undertaken reflects an appreciable improvement of the performance indicators over a comparable funding from the state budget related to each of the four years for which the comparison is made. The study value lies in presenting a specific case of a management policy aimed at improving performance indicators in virtually unchanged terms of a poor funding.
