  • Ensuring the coordination and integration of multiple projects with multiple stakeholders, project teams, information technology systems, and thousands of clients.
  • Ensuring decision-makers are provided timely, clear updates on progress and analysis to make decisions.
  • Implementing income assistance program and service design changes to meet the project objectives.
