About The Opportunity
Note: Due to the urgency of the Project and short timelines, the Key Person may be asked to work more than 40 hours per week. All compensation will be at a straight time pay rate negotiated at time of WOC execution. The estimated project duration is three months. This position will support final troubleshoot/testing stages and initial O&M.
The Office of Information Services (OIS) is a shared service provider for the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Department of Human Services (ODHS). OIS provides the technology systems and services that support more than 11,000 OHA and ODHS agency staff at local offices and facilities around the state. These systems and services help the two agencies determine client service program eligibility; provide medical, housing, food and job assistance; provide addiction, mental health, vocational and rehabilitative services; protect children, seniors and people with physical and/or developmental disabilities; process claims and benefits; manage provider licensing and state hospital facilities; and promote and protect the state public health. OIS seeks a Tester IV to support User Acceptance Testing and operations and maintenance (O&M) support in connection with the IE Project. The Integrated Eligibility (IE) Project and associated subprojects (Legacy, Disaster Recovery, Data Conversion) are large bodies of work and are collectively Oregon’s largest active IT project. These projects utilize staff from multiple agencies, as well as multiple contractors. Further, there are overlapping priorities from other ODHS and OHA projects, and O&M work. IE is an expansion of Oregon\'s Affordable Care Act Compliant Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) Medicaid eligibility determination system, called OregONEligibility (or ONE) for the Oregon Health Authority. The IE Project goal is to have a single system where an Oregonian can express information about themselves and members of their household and be determined eligible for multiple health and human service programs — both ODHS and OHA programs. At the end of the IE Project, Oregonians will be able to apply online for benefits seven days a week and caseworkers will be able to focus on the care coordination activities for clients rather than on data entry across multiple systems.
