the Office of Legislative & Public Affairs
The Office of Legislative and Public Affairs (OLPA) communicates information about the activities, programs, research results and policies of the National Science Foundation. OLPA employs a wide variety of tools and techniques to engage the general public and selected audiences including Congress, the news media, state and local governments, other Federal agencies, and the research and education communities.
OLPA has two divisions: the Division of Legislative Affairs and the Division of Public Affairs.
