Restructuring of National Labor Relations Board's Headquarters' Offices
This notice advises the public that the National Labor Relations Board is restructuring and realigning the location and lines of authority of certain of its Headquarters' offices to create an independent Division of Legal Counsel reporting to the Office of the General Counsel. These administrative changes are being adopted in order to centralize the services of several Headquarters' offices, eliminate duplication of functions, improve the delivery of services, and streamline, integrate and enhance management functions.
Amendment of Statement of Organization and Functions; Restructuring of National Labor Relations Board's Field Organization
The National Labor Relations Board is restructuring its Regional Offices in Puerto Rico and Milwaukee to designate them as Subregional Offices assigned to the supervision of the Tampa and Minneapolis Regional Offices, respectively. Concurrent with this Notice, the National Labor Relations Board is revising its Statement of Organization and Functions accordingly. These changes are prompted by a decline in unfair labor practice and representation case filings in each of the Regional Offices subject to this restructuring and a desire to equalize caseload and case management responsibilities in all affected Offices. The revisions are nonsubstantive or merely procedural in nature.
Analysis of FY 2011 Service Contract Inventories
It has been determined that none of the service contractors within the special interest contracts have been considered to have performed poorly. The costs of the contracts analyzed were not excessively priced and did not present excessive risks to the government. The NLRB takes pride in monitoring service contracts closely with full cooperation from Contracting Officers, CORs, and Program Staff and Managers. Based on this analysis, we believe we have a balanced mix of contractors to employees and have the resources necessary to continue monitoring contracts effectively and efficiently to reduce risks of personal or inherently governmental contracts. The NLRB is committed to identifying and addressing any new risks related to service contracts, and will meet the challenges with swift and evasive action.
