Assistant Administrator, Office of Management (OM)
Jacqueline Myers was appointed as the Assistant Administrator for the Office of Management (OM) in the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) at USDA in December 2011. In this role, she is responsible for coordinating, marketing, resourcing, and evaluating the full range of administrative and support services provided to FSIS. In addition, OM administers specific safety, health and employee wellness functions and the Agency’s greening initiatives. Ms. Myers’ vision is to provide an effective and innovative support structure to help make FSIS as effective a public health regulatory agency as possible.
Over the last 13 years, Ms. Myers has been very involved in organizational transformation and change management. Recently, she oversaw the implementation of the Agency’s headquarters reorganization that focused on positioning the agency to be more efficient and effective in its program delivery. Ms. Myers also led a significant OM transition over the past year. She believes that these changes position OM to be an overall Administrative Service Provider of choice, as the most effective and cost efficient option, for those seeking operational services.
Prior to her current position, Ms. Myers served as the Associate Deputy Chief for Business Operations in the USDA Forest Service. She oversaw all administrative functions, including budget accountability and strategic planning, finance, civil rights and conflict management, enterprise programs, human and information resources, regulatory and management systems, safety and health, and sustainable operations (greening of the organization).
Ms. Myers has over 35 years of experience in transforming administrative programs, leading change, serving as an architect of shared service delivery models, designing and implementing business process reengineering models resulting in streamlined business functions, improving customer service and administrative efficiencies, and implementing effective metrics, performance management, tools, and methodology for quality assurance and quality control.
Myers attended the Universities of Alaska and Montana where her formal studies were in Constitutional law and criminal investigation.
