The General Assembly enacted Session Law 2007-78, which was signed by the Governor on June 14, 2007. This legislation created the Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee to oversee formal evaluation of state agency programs by the Program Evaluation Division. The Division functions in partnership with the other Legislative Services Divisions—Administrative, Bill Drafting, Fiscal Research, Information Systems, and Research.
We maintain a list of bills introduced during Session.
Report Topic Selection and Biennial Work Plan. The Program Evaluation Oversight Committee determines evaluation topics and prepares the official work plan in consultation with the Division Director. All projects, by law, must stem from the Oversight Committee’s work plan process. The Division Director may receive requests and review feasibility, but the Committee will have final authority over topic selection. The Committee approved its first work plan in December 2007. Future plans will be developed biennially.
