NASA Retains Two Ombuds Consultants

Brian Bloch and Elaine Shaw, CO-OP, have been selected to provide consulting services for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Ombuds program. Together, they will provide training, develop materials and reports, manage a case management system, creating/analyze surveys, and provide policy and procedure support to 25-30 mostly collateral duty Ombuds. Their work comes through a contract between NASA and the McCammon Group, an ADR service provider that has recently added a panel of Ombuds, based in Richmond, Virginia. (McCammon PR.)

Bloch and Shaw are both very experienced Ombuds and both have served on the IOA Board of Directors. Bloch has served as an Ombuds for World Central Kitchen, Global Green Growth Institute, Ashoka, ISKCONResolve, and the U.S. Department of the Interior. (LinkedIn.) Shaw has served as an Ombuds for USGBC Detroit Region, the International Ombuds Association, Bravely, the Society for American Archaeology, the Society for American Archaeology, and Pfizer.

  1. Looks like you may have misspelled Brian's name! I hear he is quite the brainiac, however.

    1. I really wish I could blame autocorrect for that one. But I think it's all on me. Thanks for letting me know!
