Someone who can assess legacy systems (mainframe, asp/asp.net, access) and help work on new cloud-based systems (Microsoft). This is HEAVY on the data side – so that's what we'd need 1st and foremost. They should have the .Net framework experience as well but primary skills are database-related.

The Consultant will assist with the implementation of a Citywide Procurement System that will be used by DCAS OCP along with their constituents to manage OCPs internal and citywide goods and services contracts portfolio. The system will serve as the central repository for all procurement information and will allow for more transparency, faster cycle times, and an information clearinghouse that can be leveraged to lower contract prices for internal City consumption.
The consultant is responsible for analyzing existing ASP/ASP.net SQL based application, MS Access databases, and the Mainframe system data along with planning and taking part in decommissioning these systems as dictated by the Mayors Office of Contract Services project timeline and planning. Additionally, consultant will be expected to develop a unified approach for extracting and utilizing internal data residing in our existing in-house systems, along with collecting additional data not currently housed in systems. Consultant will also be responsible for helping to troubleshoot system /data issues as part of testing and implementation and ensuring that city staff is equipped to maintain the new application, along with data that may be moved to internal storage systems. The consultant will be expected to document and write necessary interfaces.
The consultant is expected to travel between DCAS and MOCS and work out of two office locations
