Part Time




22 Cortlandt Street, 33rd Floor
New York
United States


The Correctional Association of New York (CA) is seeking a database engineer consultant to develop several databases using Microsoft Access. We anticipate that the project will require between 5 and 25 hours of work, which can be performed onsite at our office in Lower Manhattan or remotely. The individual must be skilled in Microsoft Access and Excel. Familiarity with statistical software and research methods is helpful. The individual selected to complete this project will work as an independent contractor, with terms (including compensation) to be negotiated in a consultant agreement. 

The CA is an independent, 501(c)(3), criminal justice advocacy organization founded by concerned citizens in 1844, and granted unique authority by the New York State Legislature to inspect prisons and to report findings and recommendations to the legislature and the public. The CA exercises this authority today by conducting eight to ten prison monitoring visits per year. Drawing on findings from these visits, the CA issues reports, presents testimony before the legislature, advocates for progressive criminal justice policy and legislation, partners with the media and other institutions to expose abusive or counterproductive policies, and leads coalitions of formerly incarcerated people and their allies in promoting an end to mass incarceration. Our work on gender justice addresses the effects of the state’s criminal justice policies on women and their families with the goal of reducing the over-reliance on prison as a response to the social and economic problems that women face, and embraces efforts to divert more women into rehabilitative, community-based alternatives to incarceration.
