MS Code § 57-63-25 (2015) What's This?

Part III of the economic development plan shall provide a procedure for monitoring the implementation of the state's economic development efforts. In formulating this procedure, the University Research Center will survey, identify and analyze every government program and private resource and activity that is available to, that is being applied toward, or that contributes to the accomplishment of the goals set in the long range plan. The resources and economic development activities (programs) of state government, local government, federal government and private business shall be identified and analyzed to determine the specific areas in which they contribute to achievement of the overall goals.

The planning and development districts shall be utilized fully in determining the goals established herein and shall be the primary source of information and evaluation as to local and regional economic priorities as well as the identification and reporting of local governments and local and regional private business resources available for the accomplishment of such goals.

Each agency and institution of state government involved in economic development, including the Institute for Technology Development and the state universities and junior colleges, is hereby directed to prepare and submit to the Department of Economic Development, the University Research Center and the Legislative Budget Committee work programs covering their economic development activities. The University Research Center shall specify a uniform format for agencies to follow in preparing their work programs. These work programs shall cover in general the next five (5) years of the plan and, in significant detail, the upcoming fiscal year. With each annual work program for the upcoming fiscal year, each agency shall make a full report on accomplishments of its previous year's work program. Work programs shall be submitted by August 15, 1987, for fiscal year 1988 by those agencies identified by the Department of Economic Development as being required to submit work programs in accordance with this chapter. Work programs submitted August 15, 1987, shall report on accomplishments of the prior fiscal year's work in economic development activities. The work program for fiscal year 1989, and for succeeding years, shall be submitted on June 1 prior to the beginning of the ensuing fiscal year. The state long range plan shall require copies of the overall economic development plans from each of the ten (10) planning and development districts to be submitted annually to the University Research Center along with annual work programs and details of accomplishments of the prior fiscal year's work program. These materials shall be incorporated by reference in Part III of the plan.
