The Office of Portfolio Analysis (OPA) was established in 2011 to provide NIH staff with multiple services, including consultations, training in the use of portfolio analysis tools, and software development.
OPA welcomes you to schedule a consultation with us. These sessions are intended to provide NIH staff with advice on how to approach an analysis, how to find out what tools are available, what to do when the current tools are not sufficient, and any other analysis-related questions.
In general, OPA only contributes to analyses when there is both a need and a trans-NIH component to the analysis. If you are unsure whether this applies to you, please get in touch.
Every other Wednesday, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, there will be one or more analysts available in the OPA tools lab. All are welcome to bring their questions on portfolio analysis tools and methods, and will be seen on a first come first served basis. Please note that office hours is not intended to be a replacement for training classes.
Next session: January 7th, 2015
The Portfolio Analysis Interest Group (PAIG) meets bi-monthly, and is a forum for staff from around NIH to share their analyses and best practices.
Next meeting: November 17th, 2014
