A Message from the Deputy Administrator
Joon Park, Deputy Administrator, AFM
Welcome to the Administrative and Financial Management (AFM) Web site. Our goal is to provide current, relevant information and I believe you will find the site a useful resource. We welcome your comments and suggestions for improvement.
AFM is dedicated to providing world class customer service to the USDA Research, Education, and Economics (REE) agencies. Those agencies are the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), Economic Research Service (ERS), and the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). Each of these agencies plays an important role in supporting the USDA mission. ARS is the internal scientific research arm of USDA. NIFA serves as the primary link between USDA, the Land Grant University System, and the Extension System. ERS provides economic research data used by the Secretary of Agriculture to make policy decisions. And NASS collects, analyzes, and distributes statistical data for use by a variety of stakeholders. AFM handles the administrative burden so these agencies can focus on their important and critical missions.
AFM’s greatest resource is our people, and through them we achieve our number one goal – excellent customer service. Whether you visit our site as a customer or an employee, I want you to know I am committed to working together to deliver world class service focused on results and exceeding customer expectations.
Welcome to the AFM Web site!
