Connecticut General Assembly Office of Program Review and Investigations


Legislative PRI Committee

Welcome to the PRI Staff Office Website

The Office of Program Review and Investigations is the nonpartisan staff office that supports the oversight work of the bipartisan Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee. At the direction of the committee, PRI staff examines state programs and systems to determine efficiency, effectiveness, compliance with legislative purposes, and whether corrective actions, modification, or elimination are necessary.

On December 16, 2015, the Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee (PRI) met to hear staff findings and recommendations presentations for the four studies PRI began in April and July 2015. The committee voted unanimously to approve the recommendations for all four studies.

At a later time, the committee may decide to raise certain study recommendations as legislation for the 2016 session that begins on February 3, 2016.

The study on Hartford region public school choice programs is underway, approved on September 30. That study is anticipated to conclude around March 2016.

During the June 2015 Special Session, PRI was directed by P.A. 15-5 (Sec. 428) to assist with a dealer conveyance fee data collection project, about which PRI is to report to the Transportation Committee by January 15, 2016. Data collection surveys were sent to 2,552 new and used car dealers in mid-September, due back to the PRI office by November 1. Work is underway to complete the report by January 15, 2016.
