Contract

Short Description:
The State of Iowa is implementing an enterprise content management and case management system for Iowa Department of Public Health
Complete Description:
The enterprise content management and case management system will support 10 state agencies that serve clients of the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). This project supports over 2300 clients of the Ryan White Program and Aids Drug Assistance Program through case managers at disparate sized state agencies.

Client charts and information will be migrated to this paperless system to track all client cases, which are currently inefficient due to many paper processes and paper based tracking of cases. The objectives are to build client profiles and event dashboards, search clients, create user roles, develop forms and workflows, import, export, reporting and create an electronic repository to better serve these clients and agencies.

This project is contracted with a third party development team that uses an agile development process for the software. It is critical that the project manager has experience managing an agile development team, is comfortable with managing a variety of stakeholders and has a strong communication and collaboration approach to ensure user engagement in the agile process. Escalation of issues and risks to the project is required. Scope, schedule and budget must be aggressively managed to maintain contractual timelines and delivery to expectations.

The state has a small team that works with these agencies and can articulate and prioritize the user stories that need to be managed and delivered from the product backlog in two week sprints and demos. Experience with enterprise content management systems and managing state agencies would be preferred but not required for the right candidate. Daily stand ups with the development team (via phone) are required as are strong communication execution across the core team and the agencies that will ultimately be the users of this system.
