The full name of the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Meteorology, which is in Silver Spring, Maryland, is the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Meteorological Services and Supporting Research. OFCM is an interdepartmental federal office established by the Department of Commerce in 1964, in response to Public Law 87-843, to coordinate federal meteorological activities across departments and agencies. OFCM's mission is to ensure the effective use of federal meteorological resources by leading the systematic coordination of operational weather requirements and services, and supporting research, among the federal agencies. Fifteen federal departments and agencies are currently engaged in meteorological activities and participate in OFCM's coordination and cooperation infrastructure. OFCM operates through an interagency staff working with representatives from the federal agencies who serve on program councils, committees, working groups, and joint action groups. This infrastructure supports all of the federal agencies that are engaged in meteorological activities or have a need for meteorological services. In addition to providing this coordinating infrastructure, OFCM prepares operations plans, conducts studies, and responds to special inquiries and investigations.
