Position Description

The Alabama Medicaid Agency (AMA) is preparing for a major transition from a monolithic system with 14 different business functions to an interoperable, modular system based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). This multi-year "Modularity" project will procure systems planning services, enterprise architecture services, systems integration, and each system module from multiple vendors. This project will follow a structured methodology that complies with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services standards and requirements such as the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) and Outcomes-Based Certification (OBC).

Develop key MEA insights and metrics, and prepare reports and presentations for senior managers. * Track industry trends and maintain knowledge of new technologies and make recommendations that benefit the MEA. * Participate in and contribute to planning, design, and testing events of the Alabama Medicaid Enterprise System (MES) in order to develop and maintain a thorough understanding of the vendor solutions to be implemented * Using enterprise architecture expertise and as supported by the MEA, make recommendations to management in support of key decisions--establishing priorities, evaluating trade-off decisions, ensuring best practices, and identifying risks. * Assist the effort to manage MES projects' requirements and testing in the Orbus iServer tool that ensure MES compliance with federal and state standards including ongoing changes. * Support the development of Service Level Agreements (SLA) to define AMA / vendor working relationships and establish minimum support levels and system performance standards that protect the best interest of the AMA. * Produce MEA artifacts that support the AMA Request for Proposals (RFP) and Request for Bids (RFB) to procure solutions and services that include system integration and the implementation of system modules. * Develop the MEA so that it can support comprehensive understanding of how multiple modules collectively integrate to contribute towards achieving business objectives, and use the MEA to advise the AMA accordingly. * Employee is expected to undertake any additional related duties as they are assigned by their manager.
