The Program Coordinator develops procedures consistent with the policies of the DoD Red Team in regards to services required for program accomplishment. This includes developing Program Plans, project objectives, policies and ground rules, identifying constraints, and coordinating activities. The Program Coordinator interfaces with customers, federal, state and local government agencies, other external organizations, and higher authorities, for projects assigned.
