Office of Management (OM) Reorganizes
FDA Veterinarian Newsletter September/October 2003 Volume XVIII, No 5
CVM has announced the reorganization of the Center’s Office of Management (OM), formerly known as the Office of Management and Communications (OMAC). The Communications Staff, previously a part of the OM, was realigned under the immediate Office of the Director, reporting to the Associate Director, Executive Programs.
Don Peterson, Director of OM, said the purpose of the OM reorganization is to “accommodate the Agency’s consolidation of many administrative services and to more efficiently organize around like functions.” Mr. David Lynch will supervise the newly organized Planning, Procurement and Facilities Program and Mrs. Roxanne Schweitzer will supervise the Budget and Finance Program.
Another adjustment is a title change for the former Administrative Staff. It is now the Management Services Staff, supervised by Mrs. Barbara Leach, who also serves as Deputy Director, OM. The CVM Staff College is located under the Management Services Staff and lead by Mrs. Melissa Starinsky. The structure of the Information Resources Management Staff, supervised by Dr. Jerome McDonald, remains unchanged.
The new organizational chart follows:
OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR, OM
DIRECTOR - Don R. Peterson
Deputy Director - Barbara E. Leach
Special Assistant to Director - A. Robert (Bob) Miller
Management Services Staff - Barbara E. Leach
Budget and Finance Program - Roxanne K. Schweitzer
Planning, Procurement and Facilities Program - David L. Lynch
Information Resources Management Staff - Jerome J. McDonald, Ph.D.
