Successful candidates will support a Project Office to align with the Program Executive Officer Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) and the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology’s (ASA(ALT)) mission, vision and policies by providing organizational strategic communications, risk management, and program management staff support services. This project will guarantee the successful control of costs and the introduction of cost savings initiatives, adherence to integrated multi-functional schedules and execution of projects which meet or exceed performance parameters. Without this support for the development of strategic communications plans, customer support strategies, and feedback mechanisms, critical products directly supporting the Soldier and key strategic partners would be inefficiently executed at an additional cost to the Government.
Provide risk management support throughout the project life-cycle including planning for risk, assessing risk issues, developing risk mitigation and handling strategies, and monitoring risks to determine how they have changed.
Develop or refine risk planning into a program of action that includes development and documentation of an organized, comprehensive, and interactive risk management strategy; determining the methods to be used to execute a program’s risk management strategy; and planning for adequate resources.
Implement processes and procedures to monitor risk across major programs or projects.
Communicate necessary information to the affected program areas and related personnel.
Assess impact of changes in all functional and technical areas.
Perform risk assessments to identify, define, and analyze program or project issues in terms of probability and consequences, and possibly other considerations (e.g., the time to impact).
Establish an iterative process for and identifying all known risk issues, including cost, funding, schedule, contract relationships, and political risks, based on program, customer, and user concerns and problems.
Create and maintain a risk management plan and risk register to handle known risks.
Correlate identified risks to data sources, including systems engineering documentation, life‐cycle cost analysis, project plan/Work Breakdown Structures (WBS) decomposition, schedule analysis, baseline cost estimates, requirements documents, lessons learned files, assumption analysis, trade studies/analyses, technical performance measurement planning/analysis, models, decision drivers, and expert judgment.
Develop strategies to facilitate management’s decision‐making during risks based on approved criterion.
Analyze risks based on cost, schedule and technical evaluation characteristics using approved techniques, such as comparisons with similar systems, relevant lessons‐learned studies, experience, results from tests and prototype development, data from engineering or other models, specialist and expert judgments, analysis of plans and related documents, modeling and simulation, and sensitivity analysis of alternatives.
Prepares operational and risk reports for management analysis.
Candidate should have Army or DoD experience.
Experience in at least three of the tasks for risk management.
BS or BA in the relevant field
Must have at least 5 years of relevant field of expertise.
