Promoting confidence and accountability in state government.
Introduction
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 Idaho Legislature, the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee (JLOC). OPE reviews are used by the Legislature to make policy and budget decisions, and by agencies to improve performance.
