(2) The development, coordination, and review of long-range program and financial plans that will implement established state goals and policies.

(3) The preparation, coordination, analysis, and enactment of a budget, organized to focus on state services and their costs, that authorizes the implementation of policies and plans in the succeeding budget period.

(4) The evaluation of alternatives to existing policies, plans, and procedures that offer potential for more efficient or effective state services.

(5) The regular appraisal and reporting of program performance.

To this end, each Governor shall develop a four-year strategic plan for presentation to the Legislature prior to the first day of the second regular legislative session in each term of office.
