Domain 11: Maintain Administrative and Management Capacity
Domain 11 focuses on health department management and administration capacity. Organizational administration and management is the process of organizing, leading, and controlling the efforts of organizational human and other resources to make decisions and achieve organizational goals. Health departments must have a well-managed human resources system, be competent in general financial management, have data management capacity and capability, and be knowledgeable about public health authorities and mandates. And,because of the nature of public health –the focus on the collective good, the employment of government action, and the objective of population-based outcomes –public health leaders need an infrastructure to ensure that decisions, policies, plans, and programs are ethical and address health equity. Health department leaders and staff must be knowledgeable about the structure, organization, and financing of their public health department and other agencies and organizations that provide public health services.
