  (1)  The efficiency with which the program operates;

  (2)  An identification of the objectives intended for the program and the problem or need that the program was intended to address, the extent to which the objectives have been achieved, and any activities of the agency in addition to those granted by statute and the authority for such activities;

  (3)  An assessment of less restrictive or alternative methods of performing any rule or regulation that the agency performs that could adequately protect the public;

  (4)  The extent to which the jurisdiction of the agency and the programs administered by the agency overlap or duplicate those of other agencies and the extent to which the programs administered by the agency can be consolidated with the programs of other state agencies;

  (5)  Whether the agency has recommended to the general assembly statutory changes calculated to be of benefit to the public rather than to an occupation, business, or institution that the agency regulates;

  (6)  The promptness and effectiveness with which the agency disposes of complaints concerning persons affected by the program;
