Coalition of Federal Ombuds Meeting Minutes Highlights New Office

CoFO has published the minutes of its January 2012 meeting, which included a presentation by Sheryl Brown-Norman at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. According to the summary, Brown-Norman is establishing an Organizational Ombudsman office which facilitates effective coordination among the intelligence community agencies.

During the initial pilot project period, Brown-Norman has undertaken an outreach campaign using agency announcements, staff meetings, public presentations, and other methods to explain the unique role of an Ombuds.

Other matters covered in the monthly CoFO meeting included an update on officer elections, USOA's search for a Federal Chapter chair, and discussions on practice issues. Minutes from other monthly meetings are also online. (CoFO Meeting Minutes.)
