Executive Secretariat

Invitation to the Secretary and Non-HHS Government Officials

An invitation to the Secretary must be received by ES, ready for the Director's signature-- error free, including any necessary tabs as attachments-- at least eight weeks before the scheduled event. As with all documents going to the Secretary, the memo must be accompanied by a one-page summary statement.

For an invitation going outside the Department, to be signed by the Secretary, ES must receive the complete package, ready for the Director, NIH, to sign the transmittal memorandum, at least 11 weeks before the scheduled event. Again, the memo to the Secretary must be accompanied by a summary statement.
