SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Governor; efficiency and effectiveness review and assessment of state departments, agencies, and programs; schedule; scope of review; report. Directs the Governor to establish an ongoing operational and programmatic efficiency and effectiveness review and assessment of all state departments, agencies, and programs to coincide with alternating biennial state budget cycles. The bill schedules one-half of all state departments, agencies, and programs to be reviewed in each biennial budget cycle. The purpose of the review and assessment 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 requires that the review and assessment 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 bill requires the Governor to submit a report to the General Assembly on the results of each review and assessment by December 1 of the year in which such review is conducted.
