Analysis of results and challenges: In FY2014, the amount ($1.883 million) of total restitution collected decreased by 10% compared to the amount collected in FY2013. Generally, collections are tied to the amount of the permanent fund dividend (PFD) because the Collections Unitís primary collection tool is garnishment of the PFD. Although PFD garnishments increased by 11%, voluntary payments dropped by nearly 25%, resulting in an overall decrease of 10% (FY2014 PFD was $900; FY2013 PFD was $878; FY2012 PFD was $1,174; FY2011 PFD was $1,281; FY2010 PFD was $1,305).
