The Office of Information Management and Analysis (OIMA)

The Office of Information Management and Analysis was established in 2008 to serve as an advocate for data management, a bridge between data collectors and users, as well as, provide transparency of the Water Board’s information management infrastructure. Our goal at OIMA is to collaborate monitoring efforts, accurately analyze data, make our data easily accessible, and create visualizations and reports that make data understandable across all audiences.

The following four values are at the core of who we are as an office within the Water Boards, and how we work:

We build trust: we strive to be a trusted source of water data, information, and processes, and we invest the time and space required to build, rebuild, and maintain trusting relationships.

We adapt: we strive to be adaptable and innovative in how we work and the products, services, and resources we develop.

We work in partnership: collaboration and partnerships are key to who we are and how we work. We believe the way we work directly impacts what we produce.

We drive quality: we strive to produce quality information, data, products, and services. We know the quality of the systems and processes we use determine the outcomes we are able to achieve.

See the OIMA Values Statement for how each of these values have been operationalized into behaviors that we are all empowered, expected, and held accountable to demonstrating.
