Job Description

Designs and defines system architecture for new or existing computer systems. The position will support the Program Management Office with Cross-department policy, process, and procedure development and improvement. Additionally, the position may be assigned to individual Groups within the department as a Consultant SME to address specific growth and opportunity areas. The first such assignment is planned to be in support of the Infrastructure Branch which is presently without a Branch Chief. The position will act on behalf of the Acting Branch Chief and the PMO to facilitate both daily Branch activities and to recommend Policy and Process improvements. The Branch was moved from within a Group to stand outside of a Group structure, but never developed its own self-supporting structure. These improvements will leverage the breadth and depth of technical expertise within the branch to provide enhanced interaction within the branch and in support of external stakeholders. As the branch is responsible for an enclaved infrastructure, much of the Policy and Procedure will be focused on refined IT O&M, stakeholder engagements and interactions, and communications. The position may develop into either a more hands-on technical role leveraging the developed structure within infrastructure or pivot back to the PMO to allow the role to be redeployed into other Branches and Groups as a Consultant SME.
