Work regularly with key staff (Directors, Project Officers, Managers) to review reports, assess analyses for both risks and opportunities, and identify aspects of budgets or forecasts that require modifications.

Understand university business processes, rules, data structures, and available data sources to determine the data appropriate for the solution.
