The Process for Periodic Legislative
Evaluation of State Agencies and Programs


The 117th Legislature enacted Public Law 1995, chapter 35, "The Government Evaluation Act", that established a new system for periodic review of the executive branch agencies and independent agencies of state government to evaluate their efficacy and performance. The Government Evaluation Act, found in Title 3 M.R.S.A. sections 951-963, generally applies to agencies and independent agencies that either receive money from the General Fund or that are established, created or incorporated by statute.

The Government Evaluation Act replaces the functions of the former legislative Audit and Program Review Committee which was eliminated in 1994.
