Operations and Maintenance October Newsletter: Meet the O&M Department

The Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Department has been serving and supporting the NCI scientific mission since 1972. Our dedicated staff works 24/7 behind the scenes to ensure that the NCI campus and laboratory environments are safe, functional, and reliable, as well as comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. On average, we complete 25,000 work orders each year to maintain or repair thousands of pieces of facility and scientific equipment in over 100 buildings across 68 acres. While many of our activities revolve around scheduled routine maintenance and repair, we also perform a wide range of services and custom fabrications. Please read on for a better understanding of our different shops as well as the many services we provide.
