Staff Management Plan
The Contract Manager is responsible for managing and tracking the Prime Contractor and consulting contracts for the project. This includes negotiating amendments, reviewing work authorizations and invoices, and ensuring that all contractual terms and deliverables are met.
For projects that have many project consultants, a separate contract manager may be needed specifically for overseeing the consultants. This may also be the case when the Prime Contract has a large number of deliverables and contract terms which need to be managed and tracked, so a separate manager for consultants would allow the Prime Contract Manager to focus their efforts.
The Project Librarian is responsible for supporting the Administrative Manager by acting as the librarian lead, assisting with contract deliverable tracking, and assisting with administrative services support activities.
The Project Scheduler is responsible for coordinating and managing inputs to the project plan. This includes tracking progress against project schedule, merging and identifying dependencies and risks between the project schedule, tracking progress on prime contractor's schedule and counties' schedules.
The Quality Manager is responsible for overseeing and ensuring both product and process quality for the project office as well as for the Prime Contractor. The Quality Manager provides insight into the project and contractor methods of doing business by reviewing process and product activities for adherence to standards and plans.
The Technical Manager is responsible for the day-to-day activities of state and vendor technical staff who are engaged in the technical management aspects of the project. The technical manager (a state manager for the project) and system engineer (a consultant on the project) co-lead in the technical disciplines of the project, unlike the Project Director and Project Manager who will focus on the overall project management of the project.
One of the key roles of the Technical Manager is to partner with other IT managers to acquire appropriate technical assistance for such areas as enterprise architecture, database, software development, security, testing, configuration management, change management, release management, and other technical areas of the new system. The Technical Manager, along with the system engineer, will provide leadership and support to technical staff that are augmented to the project throughout the project life cycle.
The Technical Manager will also provide technical support to the Project Director, Project Manager, and other managers in the Project Office to establish and execute technical policies, processes, and procedures.
