NIOSH Program Portfolio
NIOSH conducts a range of efforts in the area of research, guidance, information, and service. To better coordinate these efforts, NIOSH is organizing our portfolio into various specific programmatic categories that can be readily communicated and strategically governed and evaluated. The NIOSH Program Portfolio focuses on relevance, quality and impact. This is achieved through strong involvement of partners and stakeholders throughout the entire research continuum (conceiving, planning, conducting, translating, disseminating and evaluating research). NIOSH programmatic and support structures provide a foundation for NIOSH staff to carry out its mission to provide national and world leadership to prevent work-related illnesses and injuries.
The NIOSH Program Portfolio has been organized into 10 NORA Sector Programs that represent industrial sectors, and 24 cross-sector programs organized around adverse health outcomes, statutory programs and global efforts.
NIOSH has assigned Managers and Coordinators, and Assistant Coordinators to each of the Program Portfolio categories. Research councils (for NORA Sector Programs) and steering committees (for NIOSH Cross-Sector Programs) have been formed to participate in planning efforts leading to output and outcome goals and a timeline for assessing performance.
