In this chapter, unless the context otherwise requires:

1. "Agency" means any department, office, agency, commission, board or other instrumentality of this state specified in article 2 of this chapter regardless of whether monies are appropriated to such board.

2. "Committee" means the joint legislative audit committee.

4. "Special performance audit" means a performance audit of limited scope.

5. "Sunset review" means a systematic evaluation by the committee of reference under the supervision of the joint legislative audit committee, with the assistance of the appropriate agency, joint legislative budget committee, committees of reference, auditor general and support staff, to determine if the merits of the program justify its continuation rather than termination, or its continuation at a level less than or greater than the existing level. Such review shall be undertaken in the scope and detail the committee of reference deems appropriate and shall include, without limitation, whether there is a need for the program in state government and, if so, an assessment of the degree to which the original objectives of the program have been achieved expressed in terms of the performance, impact or accomplishments of the program and of the situation it was intended to address. Such review shall be coordinated with the performance audit procedures of the auditor general as set forth in chapter 7, article 10.1 of this title or of the committees of reference, whichever is appropriate.

6. "Terminate" or "termination" means the date provided for termination of legislative authority for the existence of a particular agency pursuant to article 2 of this chapter.
