The National. Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary federal agency for supporting medical research. The Office of the Director (OD) is the central NIH office responsible for setting policy and overseeing NIH's 27 institutes and centers. Allegations involving one institute raised questions about areas of oversight by the OD. In light of these questions, this report examined: (1) how NIH makes extramural research funding decisions and OD monitoring of this process; (2) the design of selected internal controls over NIH's travel and personnel appointment processes; and (3) the design of NIH's new risk management program and the program it is replacing.
