  • DGQAs must be able to:
    • Perform Data Quality analysis Activities

    • Create standard routines for ensuring data quality as defined by the Data Engineering and Architecture team

    • This includes connecting to existing Databases and exporting metadata upon request in order to create and maintain Metadata Dictionaries and documentation
