As part of the transition to the new system, this position will also be a key driver in the implementation of formal data quality processes and procedures across the agency.  This includes an evaluation of the current state of data quality and coming up with recommendations for what should be done to ensure the new system not only starts off with a baseline of excellent data quality but maintains it going forward.  This is a highly visible role and requires someone with excellent communication skills who is able to act as a translator between the technical and program/operational worlds.
