The mission of the NICHD OCM is to promote customer service excellence by providing specialized management expertise and product quality to advisory committee clients at NIH and HHS.

The Office ensures that its clients receive the highest quality administration of the laws, regulations, and policies governing federal advisory committees. This, in turn, guarantees compliance with the law and prevents any challenge to committee recommendations or decisions.

OCM handles the following activities:

  • Committee Management: OCM operates as a service center for the operational and administrative management, including ethics activities, of all NICHD and client institute federal advisory committees that participate with the NICHD Committee Management Service Center.
  • Scientific Review and Evaluation Activities (SREA): OCM is responsible for the administration of the NICHD SREA program, the mechanism by which members of grant, cooperative agreement, and contract initial review committees are reimbursed.
