Suzanne Roosen

Director, Division of Budget Formulation, US Food and Drug Administration

Suzanne Roosen is the Director of the Division of Budget Formulation in the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Budget. Suzanne and her team are responsible for FDA’s annual budget request, totaling almost $5 billion dollars. The budget formulation process involves the coordination of over 200 staff members across FDA.

Prior to joining the FDA Office of Budget, Suzanne was the lead for Budget Formulation for FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), which she first joined as a Presidential Management Fellow in 2008. Suzanne started her federal career at the Department of Treasury, United States Mint.
