The Office of Policy Coordination and Management (OPCM) provides NTIA offices and their workforce members with mission enablement support to deliver on the mission. OPCM supports NTIA’s workforce in government facilities (Washington, DC, Gettysburg, PA, Boulder, CO) as well as when they are remote or teleworking. As a smaller bureau within the Department of Commerce, some services are provided by the Department. OPCM provides support for Risk Management, Acquisition, Facilities, Operations, Human Resources, Budget, Finance, and Information Technology (IT). OPCM is comprised of four (4) divisions:
Enterprise Strategy, Acquisition and Management Division
The Enterprise Strategy, Acquisition and Management (ESAM) Division (EMD) is responsible for NTIA strategy, governance, and enterprise risk management, as well as support for OPCM management as an organization. EMD supports the full life cycle of acquisitions, including coordination with the Department of Commerce’s Enterprise Services which provides acquisition, procurement and purchase card services to NTIA. EMD also oversees property management, facilities, and operations including transit benefits and parking. Finally, EMD will be leading NTIA’s Continuity of Operations (COOP) program in the future.
Human Resources Division
The Human Resources Division (HRD) is responsible for creating a dynamic workplace that assists with all aspects of employee development. HRD offers a wide range of support and guidance to NTIA's employees and managers. HRD helps onboard and offboard new employees, provide information for newly hired employees, support personnel in career growth/development, supports hiring managers who are building collaborative teams, and provides mentoring and leadership development. Our division is also responsible for promoting a diverse workforce. In all, HRD helps make NTIA a rewarding place to work.
The OPCM's Budget and Finance Division provides a wide range of resource services to the Assistant Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary, as well as line offices including FirstNet. Responsibilities include budget formulation and execution, travel management, financial risk management and internal controls. Budget and Finance Division also conducts funds certification for grants, contracts, agreements, purchase requests, travel, and other financial transactions.
