About Us

The General Assembly created the Program Evaluation Division — a central, non-partisan staff unit of the Legislative Services Commission — and the Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee in June 2007 through Session Law 2007-78. The Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee oversees formal evaluation of state agency programs by the Program Evaluation Division.

The mission of the Program Evaluation Division is to evaluate whether programs or activities of a State agency, or programs or activities of a non-State entity conducted or provided using State funds, are operated and delivered in the most effective and efficient manner and in accordance with law. The Program Evaluation Division assists the General Assembly in fulfilling its responsibility to oversee government functions. The Division functions in partnership with the other Legislative Services Divisions—Administration, Bill Drafting, Fiscal Research, Information Systems, and Legislative Analysis. A Legislative Assistant Guide to the Program Evaluation Division is available to provide Legislators with information about the Program Evaluation Division.

The Program Evaluation Division staff is composed of a Director, Principal Evaluators, Senior Evaluators, Program Evaluators, a Publications Coordinator, a Research Assistant, and an Administrative Assistant. All full-time program evaluators hold advanced degrees or are certified or licensed professionals. Any vacancies will be posted on the Careers page.
