The Office of Portfolio Analysis (OPA) was established in 2011 to provide NIH staff with multiple services, including consultation and training in the use of tools that will allow interested individuals to do their own analyses.
OPA Mission Statement:
Our purpose is to enhance the impact of NIH-supported research by enabling NIH
research administrators and decision makers to evaluate and prioritize current, as well as emerging, areas of research that will advance knowledge and improve human health.
Our business is:
- To innovate by identifying and developing new, sophisticated tools that expand and improve NIH-wide efforts in portfolio analysis (PA);
- To apply and disseminate both current and newly developed tools, including computational approaches, which are capable of analyzing a wide range of parameters of biomedical research funding and the resulting impact;
- To promote trans-NIH coordination of PA activities and enhance collaboration among all PA stakeholders at NIH.
Our values are to be approachable, goal-oriented, and to provide services with the highest level of integrity and transparency.
