The Category Management, Strategic Sourcing, and Data Analysis (CMSSDA) branch’s mission is to represent the NIH’s interests on the Category Management Leadership Council (CMLC) and common government spend working groups. By encouraging the utilization of government wide contract solutions, CMSSDA advocates for smarter leveraged buying. CMSSDA empowers the NIH community to eliminate redundancies, increase efficiency, deliver value, and realize savings by buying as part of a larger single US government enterprise. In the rare instances when buying as part of a single enterprise is not possible, CMSSDA will encourage consolidation at either the departmental (HHS) or operating division (NIH) level.
