Governor; performance review of state departments, agencies, and programs; scope of review; report. Directs the Governor to initiate on July 1, 2016, and every two years thereafter, an operational and programmatic performance review of all state departments, agencies, and programs. The purpose of the review is to provide an objective and independent cost savings assessment of the Commonwealth's organizational structure and its programs in order to provide information to the Governor and the General Assembly to effect savings in expenditures, a reduction in duplication of effort, and programmatic efficiencies in the operation of state government. The bill provides that the review must be conducted by a United States-based private management consulting firm with experience in conducting statewide performance reviews and provides for certain required terms for the consulting contract. The Governor shall submit a report to the General Assembly on the results of each review by December 1 of the year in which such review is conducted. Read the Bill »
