From the Document: "The Office of Health Affairs (OHA) requests $111.319 million, 103 positions and 96 FTEs [full-time employees], for operations, mission support, salaries, and associated management and administration costs for OHA in FY2018.1 OHA is the principal authority for health and medical issues at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). OHA provides biological and chemical defense, medical, public health, and scientific expertise to support the DHS mission to safeguard the Nation. In FY 2017, OHA conducted a comprehensive review of its programs, resources, and missions. The FY 2018 request reflects the outcome of this organizational review: programmatic resources realigned functionally for a more effective and efficient organization. The functional activities form the framework of the Office's national biodefense architecture, chemical defense activities, and support DHS occupational health and operational medicine. The strategy of the FY 2018 request supports a functional realignment of programs into field operations, national operations support, situational awareness, technology enhancements, and preparedness and response operations."
