Welcome to the Program Evaluation Division Website

The Program Evaluation Division (PED) is a central, non-partisan unit of the Legislative Services Commission of the North Carolina General Assembly that assists the General Assembly in fulfilling its responsibility to oversee government functions. The mission of the Program Evaluation Division is to evaluate whether public services are delivered in an effective and efficient manner and in accordance with the law. The Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee oversees formal evaluation of state agency programs by the Program Evaluation Division.
