Job Title: System Analyst
Education: BS, Geroge Mason University MBA, Monmouth University
Previous Experience: Army Communications Officer Telecommincations project lead and billing analyst
Job Tasks: My company is a unique nonprofit with a mission to serve the public good and produce enduring impacts for our clients. We have government and private sector cients. Our major areas of focus are in Health Care, Transportation, Crimal Justice , Environment and Energy, National and Homeland Security, Oceans, Atmosphere and Space, Program Management and Acquistion, Toxicology and Risk Assessment. Our major advantage to our clients is that we provide non-biased advice to out clients which is due to our independence.
The area I work in is Program Management and Aquisition. I have particularly concentrated on systems analysis particularly in the area of software modernization projects. I have supported the government with the preparation, evaluation and selection of software vendor proposals for a government case management compensation system. My company's new task is to help the government monitor the selected software vendor under the vendor's performance based contract. I currently evaluate milestone deliverables for quality and content for the government such as supplementary specifications and software architecture documents. I am also coordinating the change control process with the host government agency. Most of my day is spent evaluating or preparing change control items for the Change Control Board. I also administer some of the software development tools that provide requirements tracking, defect tracking and change managment requests for the project. I also compile project metrics and report out on the software development vendor and testing progress. I am currently working with some great government employees and contractors that support the agency. Our goal is to deploy an intuitive and efficient system that accurrately tracks benefit claims.
Best and Worst Parts of the Job: I am currently working with some great government employees and contractors that support the agency. Our goal is to deploy an intuitive and efficient system that accurrately tracks benefit claims.
The worst parts are getting software development tools configured properly and finding out that that do not have the functionality to meet the goverment needs. Also the major project hick ups are always a lot of fun.
Job Tips: I think learning from peers who have done this kind of work in the past is key. Asking good questions and being inquisitive about the process is also helpful. If you can, sit with an administrator of software tools for the day or of course take the courses. Also, please read existing proposals of the web to get an insight as to what the government desires.
