Notice.

SUMMARY:

Statement of Organizations, Functions, and Delegations of Authority.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that it has reorganized the Office of Foods and Veterinary Medicine (OFVM), Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) by establishing the new Office of Executive Programs (OEP); realigning OFVM's Office of Coordinated Outbreak Response and Evaluation (CORE) Network along with its Prevention Staff and Response Staff under CFSAN; and retitling the Office of Regulations, Policy, and Social Science (ORPSS) to the Office of Regulations and Policy (ORP). With the retitling to ORP, the Regulations and Special Government Employee Management Staff was retitled to the Regulations Development Staff, and the Government Information Staff was established. This reorganization resulted in the abolishment of OFVM's Executive Secretariat Staff, CFSAN's Office of the Center Director's (OCD) Executive Operations Staff, and the Division of Social Sciences under the former ORPSS. This new organizational structure was approved by the Acting Secretary of Health and Human Services and applicable on December 7, 2017.
