Organizational Information

The Office of Research Services (ORS) plans and directs service programs for public safety and security operations, scientific and regulatory support programs, and a wide variety of other program and employee services. The ORS advises the NIH Deputy Director for Management and other NIH senior staff on the management and delivery of technical and administrative services in support of the NIH research mission.

The ORS activities impact directly and indirectly organizations and people across the entire NIH including: scientific, administrative and support staff; patients and volunteers; visitors, contractors and suppliers; providers of services including public transportation and other municipal services; other federal government organizations and agencies such as regulatory agencies, state and local governments; and the surrounding neighborhood and business community.

The ORS responds to the priorities of the NIH and IC Leadership, NIH employees, patients and others served by the NIH, by supporting an exemplary physical and service infrastructure that will effectively support new scientific challenges to strengthen the NIH mission, the unique NIH research environment, and enhance the quality of life for all who come in contact with the NIH.
