Office of Strategic Coordination Organizational Chart

The Common Fund is overseen by the Office of Strategic Coordination (OSC). OSC is housed within the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI), Office of the Director (OD), National Institutes of Health (NIH). All NIH ICs are involved with OSC in the design, implementation, and evaluation of Common Fund programs. This OD-IC partnership allows for central management and oversight of Common Fund programs while also tapping into the vast knowledge and expertise housed throughout the ICs. While approvals for funding are provided by the Office of the Director, information must be conveyed to program, grants management, budget, communications, policy, and evaluation staff throughout NIH. In all of these areas, OSC has staff that coordinate and liaise with the larger respective IC communities.
