About OMA Services

The Office of Management Assessment (OMA) provides expert advice to the NIH Director and the NIH community on program integrity, risk management, audit liaison, and management support systems. Management support systems developed and maintained by OMA include Records Management, Delegations of Authority, the NIH Policy Manual, Organizational Changes, Federal Regulations and Notices, and the NIH Privacy Program. OMA implements NIH-wide programs in each of these areas to safeguard agency assets, preserve public trust in NIH, and provide an administrative infrastructure for the agency.

The OMA is made up of three divisions: the Division of Management Support (DMS), the Division of Risk Management and Audit Liaison (RMAL) and the Division of Program Integrity (DPI). Please follow the links below or to the left for more information about the specific division.

The Division of Management Support (DMS) acts as the NIH focal point and liaison with PHS, HHS, and other federal agencies in the coordination of management activities. It also directs and implements a broad range of NIH management programs. Programs included in DMS include Commercial Services Management, Delegations of Authority, Federal Register, Forms Management, Manual Chapters, Organizational Changes, Privacy, Records Management and Regulations.

The Division of Risk Management and Audit Liaison (RMAL) provides an ongoing process to perform standardized activities that promote the overall efficiency, effectiveness, accountability and integrity of the organization's work. The overarching goal is to employ proactive risk management to enhance program performance. Programs included in the RMAL are Outside Review and Audit Liaison and Risk Management.

The Division of Program Integrity (DPI) provides a centralized management survey and review capability to promote program integrity.
