NORTH ATLANTIC AREA
The North Atlantic Area of the Agricultural Research Service encompasses twelve research locations from Maine to West Virginia. The Area Director provides executive leadership of the Area's scientific program and management of personnel and infrastructure required by the program. This is accomplished by: 1) Participation with the Administrator and Deputy Administrators in determining, prioritizing, and developing the research programs. 2) Staffing, implementing, coordinating and evaluating accomplishments of those programs. 3) Leadership and operational accountability within the Area for all programs and related activities, workforce safety, and environmental protection. This leadership responsibility includes operational planning, direction, and evaluation of research to implement programs in the Research Management Units. The Area Director participates in development of a complex national strategic plan for agricultural research in the Agency, and assures the plan is executed with coordination, cooperation, and integration of research with associated land-grant organizations, other Federal agencies, public entities, and private and international sector institutions.
