Project Description

Short Summary

To better coordinate its efforts, NIOSH has organized its portfolio into various specific programmatic categories that can be readily communicated and strategically governed and evaluated. The NIOSH Program Portfolio has been organized into eight (8) NORA Sector Programs that represent industrial sectors, and twenty-four (24) cross-sector. This project addresses the needs and activities associated with the coordination of the Manufacturing Sector Program. The activities conducted under this project, including: holding a Manufacturing Sector Town Hall; developing Manufacturing Sector web pages for the Program Portfolio website; holding Manufacturing Sector workshops at the NORA Symposia; organizing the Manufacturing Sector Research Council; and working with the Manufacturing Sector Research Council to develop and implement a national research agenda for the Manufacturing Sector.



Description

To better coordinate its research efforts, NIOSH has organized its portfolio into various specific programmatic categories that can be readily communicated and strategically governed and evaluated. The NIOSH Program Portfolio has been organized into eight (8) NORA Sector Programs that represent industrial sectors, and twenty-four (24) cross-sector programs organized around adverse health outcomes, statutory programs and global efforts.. This project addresses the needs and activities associated with the coordination of the Manufacturing Sector Program. A number of activities have been conducted, are under way or will be conducted to develop the Manufacturing Sector Portfolio under this project. A Manufacturing Sector Town Hall meeting was held to gather stakeholder input. Manufacturing Sector web pages have been developed for the Program Portfolio website. The Manufacturing Sector held a workshop at the NORA Symposium in 2006 and will hold two additional workshops at the 2008 NORA Symposium.

The primary current activity is working with the Manufacturing Sector Council to develop strategic goals and objectives for the Manufacturing Sector. In this effort, the Council has met face-to-face three times, and is anticipating additional meetings twice a year. Numerous email, live web-meeting and conference calls have also been used to work on the goals. The project will post on the web site a draft strategic plan, or research agenda, for the Sector in late FY2008, and proceed to work on refining that agenda



Mission Relevance

NIOSH conducts a range of efforts in the area of research, guidance, information, and service. To better coordinate these efforts, NIOSH has organized its 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. 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 eight (8) NORA Sector Programs that represent industrial sectors, one sub-sector program (Oil & Gas), and twenty-four (24) cross-sector programs organized around adverse health outcomes, statutory programs and global efforts. This project addresses the needs and activities associated with the coordination of the Manufacturing Sector Program represented by those industrial activities identified in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes beginning with sequences 31, 32, or 33. There are 21 two-digit sub-sectors in the sector. The Sector Council has developed 10 strategic goals and is in the process of identifying intermediate goals for the sector. As the project under which the Sector Council conducts these efforts, this project addresses all ten of the strategic goals, and all intermediate goals as they are specified.

This project contributes to the advancement of most if not all, NIOSH programs.
