B. The Department of Planning and Budget shall be responsible for the continued development and coordination of a review process for strategic plans and performance measures of the state agencies. The review process shall assess on a periodic basis the structure and content of the plans and performance measures, the processes used to develop and implement the plans and measures, the degree to which agencies achieve intended goals and results, and the relation between intended and actual results and budget requirements.

For this purpose, "spending” is defined as total appropriations from all funds for the cited fiscal years as shown in the 2001 Budget Bill.

The Department shall report its findings to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by October 1, 2000.
