Segment:State and Local
JPAS:NO
GetInsured is a cloud based shopping portal for healthcare products and services. GetInsured allows
comparison shopping for medical services like heart transplants and out-patient surgeries. The GetInsured
project would allow businesses and consumers to research, rate and purchase health insurance plans
through MNsure. The integration between MNsure and GetInsured is to be service based and would allow
MNsure to sunset the current integrated COTS shopping portal as well as the Enrollment System of
Record. GetInsured will generate notices that need to be integrated with the MNsure Electronic Document
Mangement System (EDMS) through a service based integration.
The developers will work with State IT staff to manage the development and enhancement of complex
information technology solutions and services delivered by MNIT@ Client in its support of MNsure. Some
of the technologies include systems to support integrated and distributed server environments in the
delivery of the enterprise scale of software for MNsure applications. The developers will: read/create
technical design documentation, review requirements, use Rational Team Concert, transfer knowledge to
state staff including but not limited to source code reviews. Technically they will develop RESTful and
SOAP based web services, create Data Format Description Language (DFDL) message transformations,
create ESQL message transformations, create automated builds, and additional middleware development
support as support.
The State anticipates that resources may have access to production logs that may contain information that
the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act classifies as protected health information, federal
tax information, Social Security Administration information, and data classified as not-public under
Minnesota law. The State will therefore require selected vendors to enter the business associate agreement
included as a prerequisite document.
Resource Need
This request is for a team of three full time staff augmentation resources. All three resources will come
from the same vendor.
09 May 2018
All work will be done at Client or MNSure offices in Saint Paul, Minnesota, or as Client directs otherwise.
Resources must be available for forty (40) hour work weeks except for State holidays or other exceptions
that Client approves or that the response identifies. Client may expect resources to work up to fifty (50)
hours per week depending on project volume.
Incumbent(s) (Currently holding the position while this Event is posted.)

Mode of Interview
The State will conduct interviews. The State reserves the right to remove a team from consideration if the
team is unavailable for interview as requested by the State. Interviews will be conducted in person or via
Skype.
