Data Governance Coordinator (26377)

REMOTE REMOTE | Temp to Perm LRS Consulting Services is seeking a Data Governance Coordinator for an exciting contract to hire opportunity with a client of ours. Lead the data governance process: the data governance coordinator, perhaps the most important player in the data governance structure. In fact, no agency should undertake data governance without this single overseer. The coordinator should drive the data governance agenda, direct data steward activities around data quality efforts, and ensure that data issues are resolved. Many data governance efforts fail due to a loss of momentum, and the data governance coordinator must work as a catalyst to keep the initiative moving (NASCIO 2008). This individual must focus on the mission of the group, keeping an eye on the organization’s overarching goals, following timelines and managing deliverables, reinforcing the principles of good data stewardship, and working with staff to determine how the agency can better handle its data. The coordinator must stay positive throughout the process because data governance involves significant culture change and this can be hard on staff morale: the constant scrutiny and the focus on improving agency practices can be disheartening. The coordinator must assure everyone that this is necessary and will benefit the agency in the long run. Some specific data governance responsibilities may include Working with the CIO to identify the data stewards, maintain the data steward roster, and train and oversee data stewards’ work Working with the CIO to form the Data Governance Committee Leading the Data Governance Committee, including scheduling and facilitating meetings, preparing agendas, tracking and following up on action items, and recording and distributing minutes Participating in the Data Policy Committee meetings by taking data issues to leadership. Convening, and participating in, the Data Steward Working Groups to resolve shared data issues (though individual data stewards should take on greater leadership responsibilities as the data governance process matures). Working with the Data Governance Committee to identify, track, and resolve critical data issues—maintain a log of these issues and ensure a data steward is accountable for resolving each one (see appendix D for a sample critical data issues log). Providing support to data stewards and other staff to ensure all involved know their responsibilities and are capable of meeting them. Facilitating internal communication and collaboration about data quality issues between program areas, and between program areas and technology Facilitating communication with districts by serving as the main point of contact for data topics; and serving as the district liaison if a state program area undermines or deviates from the data governance policy (e.g., a program area makes a duplicate data request or provides inadequate notice before making changes to a collection); Working with the Data Governance Committee and the IT division to develop and review standards for data elements Maintaining a data collection and reporting calendar Creating and managing the data request approval process to ensure the accuracy and security of shared data (alternatively, the Data Request and Review Board may be responsible for this activity) Participating in national data conferences and member associations to stay abreast of best practices.
