Executive Secretariat


The NIH Executive Secretariat (ES) is the hub controlling all correspondence and documents that flow to and from the NIH Director and Deputy Director. Deadlines, complicated policy issues, nor conflicting opinions can keep us from our ability to provide timely, thorough, and complete responses to Congress, the public, the scientific community, and other government agencies. The Executive Secretariat is located organizationally in the Immediate Office of the Director of the NIH.
