|By delegation of the Secretary, the Assistant Secretary for Health (ASH) has the responsibility and accountability for the overall force management of the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (Corps). OCCFM was established as a new Office within Office of Public Health and Science (OPHS) on December 11, 2003 , and became operational on April 18, 2004 . The Director of OCCFM reports directly to the ASH, and on the ASH’s behalf, develops policies and proposes regulations in order to carry out a comprehensive force management program. OCCFM establishes time lines, performance standards, and measurements for the evaluation of the operations and management of the Corps, and works closely with the Office of the Surgeon General (OSG) to facilitate operations and implementation of policies and programs. The OSG is charged with assuring the day-to-day management of the Corps’ operations.
OCCFM has four functional components that comprise the force management program: the Immediate Office of the Director; the Recruitment, Marketing, and Information Systems Division; the Workforce Policy and Plans Division; and the Program Evaluation and Oversight Division.
