(a) The Committee should try to give 2 weeks' notice to an agency under review of dates scheduled for Committee meetings, public hearings, and other related assemblages; however, lack of notice does not affect the lawfulness of the Committee's activities or decisions.

(b) To review an agency, the Committee shall do all of the following:

(1) Direct staff to prepare a draft report to be used in public hearings.

a. Following review and comment by the Committee, the draft report must be made available to the public.

b. The draft report must contain information that assists the Committee in conducting a review of the agency and meeting its requirements under this section, including background information on and an introductory analysis of the information submitted by the agency under review, together with any preliminary evaluations or recommendations arising from the information in the draft report.
