What We Do

The Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA) is the research arm of the Florida Legislature. OPPAGA's research projects are undertaken at the direction of legislative leadership, the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee, and/or statutes or proviso language. OPPAGA provides a variety of research services

  • Performance evaluations and policy reviews of government programs and follow-up reviews that assess whether agencies have resolved problems identified in earlier studies
  • Research and technical assistance to legislators and legislative committees
  • Government Program Summaries (GPS), an electronic encyclopedia containing descriptive and evaluative information on all major state programs
  • PolicyNotes, a weekly electronic newsletter of policy research of interest to Florida policymakers

OPPAGA was created by the Florida Legislature in 1994 to help improve the performance and accountability of state government.
