The OD Office of Management Assessment (OMA) has
responsibility to maintain the NIH Policy Manual repository (NIH Manual System)
and official records, support the policy issuing office (IO) with developing,
revising, or rescinding Chapters, coordinate the formal review and vetting
process, and notify the NIH community through the NIH LISTSERV.
The Manual Chapter (MC) System is the official
mechanism of issuing NIH-wide policy and procedures.
How to Submit Manual
The OMA issued NIH Policy Manual, Chapter
1710, NIH Manual System, in order to create a more streamlined submission
process. Please contact the NIH Directives Officer at (301) 496-2706 or
firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any additional questions or comments.
Questions about a specific Chapter of
the NIH Policy Manual
The IO is listed at the top of every
Manual Chapter and normally includes a phone number. If a number is not listed
or you would like a point of contact identified for the issuing office, you may
check the MC contact list (below) or contact OMA for help.
