Effective and efficient data management is critical in helping our staff obtain, interpret, and analyze the large volume of information they need and rely on.

  • Program management, including project management, change management, communications, and training;
  • Advisory services, supplying content expertise and data science.

The office is led by Micheline Casey, a recognized expert on data governance and management. Micheline and her leaders are seeking talented, experienced professionals to help build the Board's data management environment from the ground up.
