'We Are the Best'
Zerhouni Challenges NIH'ers to 'Start Winning' A-76 Bouts

By Carla Garnett

NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni

Amid lingering concern among the rank and file about the potential impact of A-76, NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni took to the Natcher stage at a June 18 town hall meeting with a strong message for employees: the NIH workforce is the best, and the best can prevail.

"A-76 is a competitive process," Zerhouni said. "We're going to review the way we do our work, figure out what is the most important way of doing the work efficiently, identify on our own terms the level of excellence that we expect, and we're going to fight and compete for these jobs. And my intent is to win every one of those competitions."
