  • Be responsible for the preparation and stewardship of the division’s annual budget of $284M and all fiscal operations including monthly reviews of financial metrics to identify opportunities for expense reduction and management.
  • Continually evaluate services provided by DHHS regarding long-term strategy to ensure it meets the goals and objectives of the agency.
  • Collaborate with Support Services to develop, implement, and monitor procurement and contractual services, physical space management, and records management initiatives related to the Department.
