Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee

The General Assembly enacted Session Law 2007-78 on June 5, 2007; it 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.

Report Topic Selection and Biennial Work Plan.  The Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee, in consultation with the Division Director, determines evaluation topics and establishes the work plan of the Division. Evaluations examine what programs are really doing, at what cost, and to what effect, if any. The Division recommends policy options for consideration by the General Assembly for programs that are determined ineffective or no longer necessary. The Division follows up to determine if recommendations have been implemented by agencies or if further action is needed by the General Assembly.
