Chief Information Governance Officer (WMS Band 2)
Office of Civil Rights and Risk Management
Tumwater, Washington
Our ideal candidate is a team player, defined as having a driving passion for the work, bringing humility to their job and people interactions, and understanding how their words and actions affect others.
Our ideal candidate sees the needs and objectives of others and takes them into account while achieving their objectives.  They adapt their approach and expectations accordingly. 
Our ideal candidate is outward even when confronted with others that are not open or collaborative.  They demonstrate resilience and model outward behaviors even when under pressure.

The Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO) is a strong leader, an agent of change, and a champion for Information Governance (IG) throughout the agency.   
When our CIGO reads the phrase, "Other people matter like I matter" they'll think, "Yes!" They might even say it out loud. And their mindset shows up in the ways they behave toward others. They take time to see the needs, objectives, and challenges of the people they impact. They accomplish what they need to accomplish in a way that helps others deliver their results as well.
When we talk with the CIGO about their values, they'll see themselves as Human-Centered, dedicated to developing partnerships, and fostering equity, and excellence. They'll also see in these words a challenge to improve--personally and organizationally--in pursuit of a better impact on people and better business outcomes.
When we ask others about our Chief Information Governance Officer, they'll describe a person of remarkable capability, diligence, and focus. They'll tell us about someone whose team:
  1. Sees and understands the objectives and challenges of people they work with and people they impact.
  2. Makes adjustments to what they're doing based on what they learn.
  3. Holds themselves accountable for actually helping those around them succeed, as well as achieving their own business results.
It takes personal courage, tenacity, and humility to achieve big things in this way. Our ideal Chief Information Governance Office candidate probably wonders whether they're up to this challenge. Nonetheless, they want to take it on because they're hungry for personal growth and hungry to help build this kind of business, team and workplace culture at the Department of Health.
Reporting to the Deputy for the Office for Civil Rights and Risk Management, the Chief Information Governance Officer (CIGO) is responsible for leading agency efforts in developing, implementing and managing an enterprise-wide integrated IG program designed to optimize the agency's use of its information. This position leads a team of three (3), manages the Information Governance program for the agency and makes final recommendations for associated policy development, processes, procedures, and guidelines for information governance, enterprise content management, records management, public records requests/public disclosure, and privacy issues associated with healthcare information.
