PSIS Assessment

This is a private link outlining the PSIS Continuous Improvement Assessment. The Colville Business Council initiated this assessment to develop a comprehensive report evaluating the overall effectiveness of the current operations in addition to recommendations for continuous improvement. The Colville Tribe’s Employment & Education Director, Tammy James-Pino, was directed to lead this effort.

A following is a list of the small taskforce that was established to complete this task:

  • Shannon Thomas, Office of Reservation Attorney
  • Cree Whelshula, Language Program Manager
  • Yalonda Misiaszek, Human Resources
  • Thomas Ball, Planning
