Development of Health and Human Services (HHS) Plans and Guiding Principles
OSTP has determined that the Research and Development (R&D) threshold of $100 million in annual research and development expenditures be applied on an Operating Division (OPDIV) by OPDIV basis, and not to all of HHS.
Four HHS OPDIVs meet the Research and Development threshold:
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Each OPDIV was directed to draft their own implementation plan.
All HHS agencies were invited to draft their own implementation plan.
