The Program Section Supervisor is responsible for the implementation of agency, division, and bureau direction and the oversight of day-to-day operations of the programs within their Section. This position leads staff to accomplish goals by clearly and effectively communicating priorities and expectations to personnel, develops and coordinates annual work plans with personnel, provides meaningful and timely feedback to personnel, manages personnel, implements the professional growth matrix, and aligns operations with the Department strategic plans. This position works with its Bureau Chief to establish direction, identify strategy, inform of interest/controversy, and assess effectiveness of operations. Other responsibilities include: implementing policies and procedures to ensure regulatory compliance and continuous business process improvement; managing program funding in compliance with the statutory and funding source requirements for the programs by setting fiscally responsible goals, monitoring budgets, and evaluating results; and developing stakeholder relationships and fostering communication among diverse interest groups regarding program activities with the intent of finding mutually beneficial solutions to problems.
