This responsibility includes developing Power BI dashboards, various communication tasks, monitoring and updating a newly developed SharePoint site with embedded dashboards, and serving as a resource and subject matter expert on performance measure development. This position will also lead the Section's effort in managing a maintenance program for the growing portfolio of Power BI dashboards and technical solutions. This responsibility includes management of a SharePoint list that drives the maintenance process.
