Full-time employee - Sacramento

About Us:

Since 2010, we have been working with some of the largest government agencies in California, helping them to solve their greatest challenges. We are a small firm dedicated to big ideas and enjoy the rewards that come from hard work and commitment to our client base. We offer the salary and benefits of the bigger companies with the added bonus of a flexible workplace and a great work-life balance.

Scope Of Work:

The Contractor shall work under the client’s direction and supplement client’s project approval, oversight, and management resources in fulfilling client’s IT Project planning and approval roles and responsibilities. The Project Manager may work on one (1) or more IT Projects at any given time during the Contract term and may be required to provide Independent Project Oversight Services as needed.
The Project Manager shall interact with and coordinate activities with other partners or government entities as necessary. However, the Project Manager shall be primarily responsible for providing Project Planning, Approval, and Management Services during the initiation and planning phases of various non-delegated IT Projects within the client’s IT Project Portfolios. Tasks include but are not limited to:

  1. Provide Project Planning, Approval, and Management Services to large, complex non-delegated IT Projects in accordance with industry standards and best practices.
  2. Provide independent reviews, analyses, and assessments of IT Project planning activities and documentation (e.g., budget change proposals, cost estimations, and resource allocations) to ensure the Project will achieve its goals and objectives within its approved cost, schedule, and scope.
  3. Identify and evaluate the impacts of any risks and issues based on industry standards, best practices, and experience with the criteria for IT system design, development, and implementation projects.
  4. Evaluate and report on critical issues and risks affecting the Project’s objectives, focusing on the Project’s planning and project management methodologies, including, but not limited to, the client’s Project Planning, Approval, and Management process and PMI PMBOK knowledge areas.
  5. Ensure the deficiencies, issues, findings, and recommendations identified in the Project Planning, Approval, and Management process are incorporated into the appropriate project management processes (e.g., cost management, risk management, schedule management).
  6. If necessary, work with the client's PAO staff, the Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) vendor, and team members assigned to the Project to ensure Project evaluations and Independent Oversight Project Report (IPOR) evaluations are accurate and complete. Oversight reporting must include follow-up information on the Project’s corrective/mitigation action and implementation of oversight recommendations. As the Project progresses, the review and assessment process also must track the disposition of the prior findings, recommendations, and identified deficiencies.
  7. Shall interact with and coordinate activities with other partners or government entities as necessary.
  8. Complete Assessments, Plans, and Reports.

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. At least ten years (10) years of full-time equivalent (FTE) experience in project management, of which three (3) years shall have been in a lead or management capacity (i.e., Project Manager, Manager, Director) on a completed or in-progress large-scale development and implementation project(s). A large-scale project is one with a budget of over $20M and impacts over 1,000 users.

  3. Within the last five (5) years, at least two (2) years of direct experience with using Microsoft Project Server for schedule management.

  5. At least two (2) years of experience planning projects leveraging iterative or agile development lifecycle methodologies.

  6. At least two (2) years of experience performing Organizational Readiness and Independent Project Assessments.

  7. At least two (2) years of experience reviewing deliverables and other project artifacts, assessing their quality, and providing feedback and recommendations to stakeholders.
