Policy Coordination

Policy Coordinators are policy neutral and confidential staff who manage the Department’s development and review of regulations, correspondence, Reports to Congress, and other policy documents, facilitating discussions to reconcile policy disagreements. They are experts on HHS-administered programs who identify, manage, and help resolve the many complex, technical issues the Department must consider. When an issue requires a Secretarial decision, they ensure that the Secretary receives thoroughly developed options and supporting materials on an issue. Policy Coordinators also manage the Department’s regulatory review process.

Documents and Regulations Management

The Office of Documents and Regulations Management (ODRM) staff oversee publication of departmental regulations and related documents and manage the circulation of Secretarial documents within the Department. ODRM staff are familiar with Department programs and priorities, and they analyze reports, memoranda, and correspondence to the Secretary, assigning documents to the appropriate component within the Department for drafting and review.
