Short Description:

 

This PM position is for an initial duration of 2 months from the date the resource starts, with a strong possibility of extension. Resource will develop a detailed project plan, project timeline, and oversee coordination of development staff and BAs.

 

Complete Description:

The OIG Automated Recovery System (“OARS”) is the Office of Inspector General’s primary IT solution for the agency’s welfare recovery efforts: case generation and routing, processing and recording payments, generating letters and reports, and communicating with several outside systems to achieve its mission.

Some major initiatives within the project’s scope include fixing known issues within the user interface, granting access to staff at allied state agencies to augment current business practices, granting access to the public to incorporate e-commerce style repayment of debt, simplifying or streamlining the generation of letters and legal documents, and creating detailed documentation of current business practices and rules.

 

The Project Manager in this role will be responsible for developing a detailed project plan, project timeline, and detailed Systems Requirements Specification (developed in conjunction with agency staff), as well as for overseeing the coordination of the development staff and business analysts.
