OMH's Evaluation Planning Guidelines and Evaluation Protocol

Evaluation Protocol
[PDF | 1.6MB]
In June 2007, as part of its efforts to foster a systematic approach to planning, performance measurement and data collection, and evaluation of OMH-funded programmatic efforts, OMH issued its Evaluation Planning Guidelines for OMH Grant Applicants (Evaluation Guidelines) [PDF | 760KB]. These Evaluation Guidelines outline seven steps that provide guidance to OMH grant applicants on the development of their evaluation plans and the key components for identifying how proposed projects and activities will be evaluated to determine if intended results have been achieved. The Guidelines include OMH grantee-specific performance measures and have accompanied all OMH grant program announcements since their development.

Subsequently, OMH also completed its Evaluation Protocol for Systematically Evaluating Efforts to Improve Racial and Ethnic Minority Health, Reduce Health Disparities, and Effect Systems Approaches (Evaluation Protocol) [PDF | 1.6MB]. This Evaluation Protocol is intended to be used more broadly than the Evaluation Guidelines, e.g., by non-grantees, partners, and other stakeholders in the evaluation of projects and activities targeting minority health/health disparities problems. The Evaluation Protocol contains nine steps recommended in evaluation planning and implementation, and provides more information on the first seven steps that comprise the Evaluation Guidelines.

The development of both the OMH Evaluation Guidelines and the Evaluation Protocol was driven by the logic model approach presented in the Strategic Framework and is intended to promote more systematic and consistent processes for evaluations linked to OMH's overall approach to its mission. By supporting and conducting evaluation efforts in such a fashion, OMH expects to generate new knowledge about what works and facilitate continuous improvement.
