Minnesota Management and Budget is the result of a merger and reorganization that went into effect in 2008. The merger combined the former departments of Finance and Employee Relations and the Management Analysis Division from the Department of Administration.
MMB became a "department" when the Legislature, as expected, made that determination in the 2009 session.
Commissioner: Tom Hanson (June 2008 - November 2010); Steve Sviggum (December 2010); Jim Schowalter (January 2011 - December 2014); Myron Frans (January 2015 - present).
