While enrolled in the MPA program, Nancy worked at the Office of Fiscal Analysis (OFA), a nonpartisan office that serves the Connecticut General Assembly for her Internship and Professional Practice. “I assisted in the preparation/analysis of expenditures and revenues associated with the state budget. I also provided extensive research and fiscal analysis of public policy issues for state decision-makers. Some large projects I have completed: (1) established a database of all CT magnet schools (there are around 90) containing pertinent data such as historical student enrollment and construction grants, (2) designed a dynamic and automated spreadsheet of economic indicators used in a biweekly report to the director of OFA, and (3) developed a model forecasting revenues to CT from the 1998 Master Tobacco Settlement Agreement.”
