This position will assist the Deputy Chief for Behavioral Health Integration (BHI) with routinely compiling and monitoring all program output for quarterly and annual reports to funders and other strategic partners.

This position will also run reports from PHPA's integrated data system, in order to facilitate quarterly and annual output reports from all funded HIV testing sites (i.e., Maryland local jurisdictions). 

This position will collaborate with external and internal bodies, along with oversight entities; help champion SAMHSA-funded initiatives and opportunities; and, oversee the data components of any resulting contracting from SAMHSA-funded activities. This position will also support the monitoring of HIV, STI, and viral hepatitis program output, as well as support knowledge dissemination resulting from any innovative and responsive programming funded by SAMHSA. 

Also, this position will work closely with all SAMHSA-funded staff members within the CHSIC, along with representatives from the BHA, Maryland's local jurisdictions, and community-based organizations. Such collaborative work will be conducted, in order to ensure the timely, high-quality and compliant monitoring and reporting of program data.
