Tina Faecke is the Administrative Officer for the NEHRP Secretariat.

Faecke joined NIST in July 1974 as a Clerk-Stenographer assigned to NIST Personnel. She was selected for a permanent position in the Office of ADP Standards Management, Institute for Computer Sciences and Technology (ICST), in November 1974, and was promoted to an Administrative Aid position within the same office in December 1976. During her career in ICST, she served as a Secretary (Stenography) for a Division Chief, the Center Director, and the Laboratory Deputy Director. In September 1988, Faecke was promoted to an Administrative Officer position. She was given full responsibility for the laboratory headquarters budget and human resource execution and operation. She was also responsible for coordinating and overseeing the November 1995 physical relocation of approximately 520 employees and property to NIST North when the NIST Computer Systems Laboratory and NIST Computing and Applied Mathematics Laboratory merged to become the NIST Information Technology Laboratory.

In March 1996, Faecke was selected for an Administrative Officer position in the Building Environment Division (BED), NIST Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL). BED has an annual operating budget of about $10 million and its staff includes about 48 federal employees and 10 guest researchers from industry, universities, and foreign entities.

In early 2006, Faecke was named to serve as the Administrative Officer for the NEHRP Secretariat. In her current position, Faecke:
