most important principle in firm activities improving is performance
measurement. Financial institutions, especially commercial and specialist
banks, have a great role in the economic and social development of countries.
Therefore, performance analysis of these institutions is of great importance.
The main purpose of this study is to measure the performance efficiency of
eight selected commercial and expert banks in East Azerbaijan province of Iran
between 2013-2016. Data Envelopment Analysis which is based on linear
programming was used as the method in this study. According to the results of
the study, the scale inefficiency was greater than technical inefficiency in
all years and in almost all years the average managerial
efficiency was greater than the average scale efficiency. Therefore, the
problem of not operating the banks at the optimum scale is more severe than the
managerial inefficiency. In this context, banks are advised to use existing
resources more effectively, taking into account scale sizes.
