The effective management of compliance issues, assembly, analysis, and reporting for the Food and Nutrition Education in Communities Program. Administration of the data relationship with programs utilizing the WebNEERS (Web-based Nutrition Education Evaluation Reporting System) to ensure standard reports, interfaces and ad hoc needs of FNEC and CCE programming are met. Oversee the submission of budgetary projections and expenditures from CCE association’s offering EFNEP programming, allowing FNEC to complete budgetary reports for the USDA/National Institute of Food and Agriculture.  Ensure the compliance of FNEC program staff with the expectations of Institutional Review Board. Coordinate the operations of the FNEC unit to ensure program objectives are achieved. Develop, implement, and evaluate training programs related to the utilization of and reporting through and with WebNEERS. Represent FNEC at the national level, as needed, with USDA/NIFA and other state nutrition programs in the area of evaluation, data quality, and management of related databases, particularly WebNEERS.

Effectively coordinate interactions with NIFA (National Institute of Food and Agriculture), the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) and the Cornell Cooperative Extension Offices within New York State related to collection and management of evaluation data and related databases.
