Prior to 2010, The Budget Office housed an Evaluation group which represented the County's cross departmental research and evaluation capacity. It performed research & evaluation functions relating to county programs, policies, and initiatives in various service areas for the Chair's Office, Board of County Commissioners, all County departments and local agencies that collaborate with the County.
Funding for the Budget Office Evaluation unit was eliminated during the Fiscal Year 2010 budget and was not reinstated until late in 2013. Information about the current Evaluation Research Unit can be found at here.
This site houses the work and publications performed by the Evaluation group prior to 2010. If you have any questions about BOE, please contact Anna Plumb, manager of the current Evaluation and Research Unit.
