The Data Warehouse project was a strategic plan initiative of the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR). As the Data Warehouse Project Director for the implementation of Ellucian's Banner Enterprise Data Warehouse, Dr. Babey developed the project plan and schedule in collaboration with the project management team and consulting partner; monitored them to make sure all agreed-upon activities were completed; and oversaw the project budget and authorized payments. She monitored the activities of the Implementation Team and the Technical Team to keep them focused and the project on track. She wrote policies and procedures related to the MOHESR Data Warehouse. Dr. Babey also was the non-voting chair of the MOHESR Data Warehouse Steering Committee. This implementation was the first use of the Banner Enterprise Data Warehouse as a stand-alone system housing integrated data from five distinct data sources: three Banner systems and two other non-Banner systems.
As Senior Consultant, Dr. Babey reviewed and documented HEPC and National Admission and Placement Office (NAPO) office processes and procedures and position descriptions, which were to be incorporated in a Policy and Procedures Manual. She wrote MOHESR administrative and information technology policies and procedures. Dr. Babey facilitated the initial development of an integrated operations calendar for the National Admission and Placement Office (NAPO), the Common Educational Proficiency Assessment Office (CEPA) and Information Technology.
