Information about the HPC's leadership team

Under the leadership of Executive Director David Seltz, the HPC staff is divided into seven departments. Each department works on focused areas as well as collaborative, intra-agency projects to ensure that the HPC’s statutory deadlines are met in a robust, transparent, and timely manner. Two executive departments have oversight and administrative duties, while five other departments focus primarily on policy, research, and program design/operations. Click on the teams below to learn more about their function within the agency.
