By Carla Garnett

OER Unveils NIH Reinventing
Government Agenda for FY 1998

By MaryJo Hoeksema

The "reinventing government" movement is alive and prospering at NIH. Proof of its vitality was evident at a recent meeting of the extramural program management committee (EPMC), where Dr. Wendy Baldwin, NIH deputy director for extramural research, and Geoffrey Grant, director, Office of Policy for Extramural Research Administration, unveiled the NIH extramural reinvention priorities for fiscal year 1998. The presentation highlighted initiatives that the Office of Extramural Research, in partnership with other institutes and centers, has selected this year for development, testing and, in some cases, execution. The goal of each initiative is to reduce administrative burdens, enhance NIH interactions with the research community, and facilitate science.
