Office of Performance Evaluations

About the Office

The Office of Performance Evaluations (OPE) is a nonpartisan, independent office that evaluates whether state government programs and agencies are operating efficiently and cost-effectively, and are achieving intended results. OPE conducts all reviews in response to direction from an equally bipartisan committee of the Legislature, the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee (JLOC). OPE's reviews are used by the Legislature to make policy and budget decisions, and by agencies to improve performance.
