• Program Evaluation Division (2007-2021)

    North Carolina General Assembly

    PED was in operation for 13.5 years until February 26, 2021, when legislative leadership dissolved the division in favor of giving members more involvement in the oversight process.

    The General Assembly created the Program Evaluation Division (PED)—a central, non-partisan staff unit of the Legislative Services Commission—and the Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee in June 2007 to assist the legislature in fulfilling its responsibility to oversee government functions (NC General Statutes – Chapter 120, Article 7C). PED’s mission was to evaluate whether public services were delivered in an effective and efficient manner and in accordance with the law.
