About The Opportunity

The Office of Information Services (OIS) is a shared service provider for the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Department of Human Services (DHS). OIS provides the technology systems and services that support more than 11,000 OHA and DHS 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.

Job Description

  • OIS seeks a part-time mainframe developer (Cobol) for the IE (Legacy) 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 DHS and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) projects, and ongoing maintenance and operations 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 (OHA). 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 DHS and OHA programs. At the end of the IE Project, Oregonians should be able to apply online for benefits seven days a week and caseworkers should be able to focus on the care coordination activities for clients rather than on data entry across multiple systems.
  • This resulting Work Order Contract is anticipated to be one year in length. Note however it will NOT exceed 1040 hours total. This resource will support defect resolutions and project change orders as IE rolls into Production.
  • Required skills and experience:
  • Minimum of six years of experience as a Senior Mainframe Developer using the following:
  • COBOL
  • CICS
  • JCL
  • DB2
  • JCL
  • TSO/ISPF
  • In addition, the ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:
  • Demonstrated knowledge of relevant functional business areas of Oregon Self-Sufficiency Program (SSP) and Oregon Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) programs and processes, or similar knowledge from other states.
  • Previous experience in state or local Oregon government agencies or for Human Services organizations in other states.
  • Demonstrated experience with large-scale complex technical architectures that include interfaces with other large-scale systems.
  • Demonstrated knowledge with logging of communication between large-scale systems.
  • Demonstrated knowledge in the handshake between interfacing systems to ensure proper reception and synchronization of records; this should specifically include experience developing and testing web services across multiple platforms.
  • Demonstrated experience working independently with minimal supervision and direction
  • Demonstrated experience developing analysis and design documentation necessary for the construction, testing and implementation of identified tasks to be completed.
  • Our primary criteria are the qualifications and experience of the proposed key person. Please propose your strongest candidate, at a rate less than or equal to the maximum.
  • Due to circumstances beyond our control, we anticipate two weeks or more for the background check completion for the selected candidate. Key Person shall initially work on site in Salem, Oregon.
  • The selected key person could potentially telecommute, as agreed to between the Agency Authorized Representative and the key person. Any decision to allow telecommuting is made with the understanding that decision will be re-evaluated by the Agency Authorized Representative on a regular basis. The key person should be available to work onsite within a reasonable timeframe.
  • Telecommuting will be contingent upon the key person providing his/her own adequate computer, monitor(s), Internet connection, and telephone, and be readily available during normal working hours via phone, email or instant message. Access to Agency systems will be provided via Citrix Remote Desktop or similar software. No hardware or additional software will be provided at the key person\'s home site or his/her PC, unless a specific device is required to perform assigned duties (such as Multi-Factor Authentication devices).
  • If the Agency Authorized Representative and key person agree to allow off-site work, the expectation is for that key person to work onsite as soon as the general workforce transitions back into the Agency workplace.
  • Work schedule is typically Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM Pacific Standard Time.
