Office of the Ombudsman

Confidential - Neutral - Independent - Informal


Our standard of neutrality means we:

  • - Treat everyone with equal respect, giving each our full attention and consideration
  • - Hold all parties as equal, regardless of their rank or status within NIH
  • - Have no stake in the outcome
  • - Advocate for a fair process, but not for NIH or any individual, department or institute
  • - Are mindful of possible conflicts of interest
