The Commonwealth Scientific Industrial and Research Organisation (CSIRO) has adopted new operating arrangements to make it easier to do business with the organisation and for staff to deliver science better.
Chief Executive of CSIRO, Dr Megan Clark said that from July 2014, CSIRO would have three lines of business: National facilities and collections; Impact science - including a new Flagship portfolio; and Services - including education, publishing, infrastructure technologies, SME engagement and CSIRO Futures.
Dr Clark said CSIRO had also appointed Executive Directors who would join Chief Finance Officer, Hazel Bennett and Deputy Chief Executive Science, Strategy and People, Dr Craig Roy as the Executive Team of the organisation from 1 July.
Dr Clark said Dr Dave Williams would be Executive Director National Facilities and Collections and would retain responsibility for the Information Management and Technology function.

Dr Moloney would also be responsible for the Black Mountain Precinct strategy.
