Description of Project
MNIT @ Client is issuing this event to secure one (1) Software Quality Assurance Analyst resource with
strong testing experience using accessibility / 508 compliance methodology in large and complex systems
development projects. The Minnesota Client (Client) and MNsure have been charged
by the state legislature with simplifying policy and modernizing human services delivery systems, including
the Minnesota Eligibility Technology System (METS), to better meet the needs of clients and servicing
agencies and to increase accountability to all Minnesotans. To do this, it is necessary to align automated
systems development efforts to a business service delivery model.
The successful candidate (Accessibility Consultant) must have the experience to assume the role of usability /
accessibility / 508 compliance software Quality Assurance Analyst on large and technically complex (new
and active) projects. Experience using screen readers (i.e., JAWS) and narrators is required, as this type of
testing impacts current projects. Accessibility Consultant (candidate) must interview face-to-face on-site if
working locally, or via Skype, if currently working out of state. For each project, the Accessibility Consultant
will be working with project teams, and is expected to create or participate in creating: Accessibility QA
Test Strategy, Accessibility QA Test Plan, Accessibility QA Test Cases, Accessibility QA Test Closure,
Accessibility Defects, Accessibility portion of the Requirements Traceability Matrix, and other Accessibility
documentation, as requested (i.e., meeting notes, documented processes, change requests, status reports).
The Accessibility Consultant will interface with a variety of individuals—both on the project team and
outside the project team—who may have a vested interest, and who can offer information pertaining to the
project, including: Program Manager; Project Manager(s); Business Analyst(s); Developer(s); Database
Administrator(s); Information Technology Group; System Architect(s); all members of the QA staff
(Managers, Supervisors, Leads, other QA Analysts); Business staff; Client Business staff; MNIT employees;
external vendors; stakeholder community, including the counties and health care provider organizations; and
other agency team members. The Accessibility Consultant will mentor and support other team resources on
MNIT's established Quality Assurance Best Practices.
Accessibility project requirements include, but are not limited to: Work must comply with the State's
Accessibility Standards. Work must comply with the Statewide Enterprise Architecture. Work must comply
with the State's Enterprise Security Policy and Standards. Work must comply with Statewide Project
Management methodology. Work must comply with applicable industry / agency standards. Accessibility
Consultant is able to work independently, with little or no supervision, drive to resolution in situations that
have high ambiguity and confusion. Accessibility Consultant will report to the Vendor's Resource Manager,
who will receive work direction from the State's Accessibility QA Supervisor.
Client does not anticipate that the accessibility consultant will work in production environments or encounter
data either classified as "protected health information " by HIPAA or as "not-public data " by the Minnesota
Government Data Practices Act. Therefore, Client does not anticipate that the vendor will need to enter a
business associate or data sharing agreement.
All work will be done at Client and/or MNsure offices in Saint Paul, Minnesota, unless otherwise arranged.
This request is for one full time staff augmentation resource. Consultant must be available for forty (40)
hour work weeks, except for State holidays or other exceptions approved by Client, and/or identified in the
Event response. Resources may be expected to work up to fifty (50) hours per week dependent on project
Incumbent(s) (Currently holding the position while this Event is posted.)
No, there are no incumbents for this Event.
Mode of Interview 10 May 2018
The State will conduct interviews. The State reserves the right to remove a resource from consideration if
the resource is unavailable for interview as requested by the State. Accessibility Consultant must Interview
face-to-face and on-site if working locally, or via Skype, if currently working out of state.
