This organizational change is primarily to realign the functions of OPHEP to more clearly delineate responsibilities for the various activities associated with emergency preparedness and response. This includes the designation by the President that HHS is the principal Federal agency for planning and coordinating response to mass casualty incidents. Also, on behalf of HHS, OPHEP will develop and implement policies and procedures with respect to physical and information security. The changes are as follows. I.

OPHEP is an office of the Public Health Service (PHS) and is responsible for ensuring a ‘‘OneDepartment’’ approach to developing such preparedness and response capabilities and directing and coordinating the relevant activities of the HHS Operation Divisions (OPDIV). The principal areas of program emphasis are (1) enhancement of State and local preparedness—primarily health departments and hospitals; (2) development and use of National and Departmental policies and plans relating to the response to public health and medical threats and emergencies (e.g., Emergency Support Function (ESF) #8 of the National Response Plan (NRP), Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPD) #5 and #10, HHS’s Concept of Operations Plan for Public Health and Medical Emergencies (CONOPS) and the Secretary’s Emergency Response Team (SERT) System Description); (3) coordination PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5183 with relevant entities inside and outside HHS such as State, local and Tribal public health and medical officials, the Departments of Homeland Security (DHS), Defense (DOD), Veterans Affairs (VA), Justice (DOJ), the Homeland Security Council (HSC), other ESF #8 partner organizations and others within the National security community; and (4) rapid public health and medical support to Federal, State, local and Tribal governments who may be responding to incidents of national significance or public health emergencies. Section 10. AN Organization: OPHEP is headed by the Assistant Secretary for Public Health Emergency Preparedness (ASPHEP), who reports directly to the Secretary, and includes the following components: • Immediate Office of the ASPHEP (ANA). • Office of Research and Development Coordination (ANB). • Office of Mass Casualty Planning (ANC). • Office of Emergency Operations and Security Programs (ANE). • Office of Medicine, Science and Public Health (ANF).

The Immediate Office of the ASPHEP (IO/ASPHEP) provides executive and administrative direction to all OPHEP components; coordinates and assists in the development of training programs and standards to prepare Federal agencies to deal with the public health and medical response to emergencies; and represents the ASPHEP at interagency and HSC policy coordination meetings. The ASPHEP is the principal advisor to the Secretary on matters relating to bioterrorism and other public health and medical emergencies. The ASPHEP coordinates interagency interfaces between HHS and other Federal Departments and Agencies, State, local and Tribal public health and medical entities. The ASPHEP directs the Department’s activities relating to protecting the U.S. population from acts of bioterrorism and other public health and medical threats and emergencies.
