As soon as practical after the enactment of any act containing appropriations for current expenses, the director of budget and management shall designate which programs or activities receiving appropriations for current expenses in the act shall be subject to performance reviews. The director shall notify in writing the head of each affected agency of the designations, the requirement to prepare a separate program performance report for each designated program or activity, and the information to be included in the report. The director shall not designate for performance review any program or activity assigned to the attorney general, auditor of state, secretary of state, treasurer of state, or agencies of the legislative or judicial branches. The director may remove the designation from a program or activity by notifying the head of the affected agency in writing of such removal. Appropriations for capital expenses are not subject to this section.
For each designated program or activity, the affected agency shall prepare a separate program performance report containing the information required by the director and submit the report as part of the agency's budget request under division (D) of section 126.02 of the Revised Code by the dates required in that section or as otherwise required by the director. If an agency fails to submit a program performance report for a designated program or activity or if, in the judgment of the director, the report submitted does not contain the information required, the director shall disapprove the agency's budget request for the designated program or activity in the state budget estimate submitted to the governor under section 126.02 of the Revised Code. The governor, in his budget submission to the general assembly under section 107.03 of the Revised Code, shall not recommend any appropriation for the program or activity and shall explain the reason for not recommending an appropriation.
