Government Efficiency Task Force

Government Efficiency Task Force with State of Florida Seal

Task Force Overview

Approved by voters in 2006 by an amendment to the Florida Constitution and first established in 2007, the Government Efficiency Task Force (Task Force) is required to meet every four years for the purpose of developing recommendations to improve governmental operations and reduce costs. Following its passage, the amendment was codified by s. 11.9005, Florida Statutes.  By law, the Task Force must submit its recommendations within one year of being established to the Legislative Budget Commission, the Governor, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The 2019-2020 Task Force will have a direct focus on government operations, centering on innovation, efficiency, and accountability.
