The Office of Policy and Accountability (OPA) facilitates health system improvement, advances health equity, and ensures standards and strategies to promote Department of Health Excellence.

To achieve this mission, OPA works in the following key areas:

  • Legislation and Policy
  • Public Health Accreditation
  • Strategic Planning, Performance Management and Quality Improvement
  • Health Equity
  • Training and Technical Assistance

OPA manages all legislative and policy activities for NMDOH. This includes legislative requests for data or programmatic information; participation in work groups or committees; attendance at hearings; and bill analysis during the legislative session. State or federal legislators or legislative staff should call the main number for the Office of Policy and Accountability with any requests, and your call will be directed to the appropriate staff member.

OPA also includes three other offices: the Office of Health Equity, the Office of Border Health, and the Office of the Tribal Liaison. More information about each office and several key work areas can be located in the sidebar menu.
