Data Manager /Contracts Administrator

The Contarcts Administrator (CA) or Data Manager (DM) is a key member of the Project team involved with the project. It may often be that the CA and DM are the same person on a project, although it depends upon the project requirements and clients involvement from the beginning of the project.

Their roles on the project are as follows:

  1. Act as the primary point of contact for any technical/operational Collaboration Tool issues and questions.
  2. Liaise with project manager, and coordinate feedback and support from project users.
  3. Setup the interface between the Collaboration Tool and users.
  4. Attend meetings to report progress and identify areas for performance and process improvement.
  5. Organise the project team including adding and removing users from the project team throughout the life of the project and setting user access rights.
  6. Coordinate training courses to ensure that all relevant users receive sufficient training.
  7. Maintain the high-level project details recorded on the system.
  8. Ensuring team members have access to folders and documents as required.
  9. Documenting changes to the folder structure or access permissions.
  10. Creating roles for team members
  11. Creating and assigning status options to the project
  12. Monitor compliance with the defined protocols i.e. document naming standards, Workflows etc
  13. Create and manage project-wide Distribution Groups to prevent superfluous notifications and maintain security.
  14. Maintaining document standardisation – e.g. document attributes
  15. Managing project attribute lists (or delegating this function, by allocating rights to certain users)
