the commissioner of human services to determine if the grant must be evaluated to determine
whether the grant uses or promotes evidence-based practices, theory-based practices, or
promising practices. Within available appropriations, the commissioner of human services,
in consultation with the commissioner of management and budget, shall identify grant
programs that an evaluation using an experimental or quasi-experimental design would
provide information necessary to promote evidence-based practices to improve the intended
outcomes of the grant. The evaluation process must include an analysis of programs or
activities that are theory-based or promising practices and the development of plans to
evaluate the theory-based or promising practices to develop an inventory of evidence-based
practices to use in future grant awards. The commissioner of human services, in consultation
with the commissioner of management and budget, shall develop reports for the legislature
and other stakeholders to provide information on incorporating evidence-based practices
in program and budget decisions. The commissioner of management and budget, under
Minnesota Statutes, section 15.08, may obtain additional relevant data to support the
evaluation activities under this section.
