In between meetings the Staff Group will be responsible for tracking the implementation of policy or programmatic recommendations. The individual filling this role will work closely with the OD Stat Chair and liaise with key points of contact in service agencies from which data is being requested. This position will be situated within both the Managing Director’s Office and the Department of Public Health.
