Integrated Statistics is looking for a Technical Writer to assist the NOAA NMFS Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) and Greater Atlantic Region Fisheries Office (GARFO).

Currently, NEFSC and GARFO have two parallel systems for catch monitoring and accounting, with the GARFO-led system focusing on quota monitoring and the NEFSC-led system supporting stock assessments and other research activities. The two systems each integrate data across a wide array of fishery information systems, and each approaches that integration slightly differently. Both systems require significant maintenance and upgrading as regulations and data streams change frequently. The Catch Accounting and Monitoring System (CAMS) implementation team is creating a single comprehensive database for all federal Northeast US fisheries catch. 

The Technical Writer will assist with the documentation of this effort, applying best business practice technical documentation insights to document these programs in a complete, useful, understandable and easily accessible manner. The deliverable is a standardized, deployed suite of user guides, business rules, and procedural documents that accord with agency data documentation directives.

The task includes specific duties that lead to high quality documentation of CAMS standard operating procedures:
