Work with bureau stakeholders, other Integrated Planning managers and Bureau leadership to identify vertical asset priorities, inform portfolio management, and sequence investments to address risk and optimize outcomes for the community. Work with Division Manager to allocate resources to workload demands; assess workload fluctuations, scheduling, staffing, and procedural and process efficiencies. Effectively communicate projects, goals, objectives, and status up and down the organization. Plan and coordinate complex large- and small-scale projects, including leading Facilities Planning efforts in accordance with Oregon Department of Environmental Quality guidance. Develop and maintain excellent working relationships across key work groups in the Bureau, including those necessary for input to the integrated planning process and customers of Integrated Planning deliverables. Build a team around planning for the bureau's vertical assets (wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, and non-process facilities) and create a culture of collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement within the Division by providing clear work plans, establishing roles and responsibilities, setting expectations, and monitoring progress. Make recommendations for solutions that address system risks as well as other strategic risks (climate and seismic resiliency, environmental, regulatory, etc.) of concern to the bureau and as informed by the Risk Assessment Division and BES work groups.
