The important internal operating procedures of NOAA Research's Office of Management and Information have been thoroughly documented with flowcharts and written narratives. Analysis of these procedures has revealed problems of communication between departments and excessive numbers of individuals involved in simple tasks. Based on this analysis, it is recommended that the office make stronger use of e-mail, document new procedures as early as possible, and trim procedures to the minimum number of necessary personnel.
