New IT Job Category added to state's IT Contingent Labor Contract

The state's IT Contingent Labor contract with Computer Aid, Inc. (CAI) was recently modified to add two new job descriptions for staff augmentation resources with IT Procurement expertise.  This enhancement was implemented in response to customer requests and the growing demand for assistance with managing complex IT procurement projects.

The new job titles, "IT Sourcing Consultant 2" and IT Sourcing Consultant 3" define the ability to lead an IT procurement team and processes which include development of solicitation documents, proposal evaluation and execution of the agreed upon negotiations strategy. It is expected these resources should be adept in managing IT specific business risks, engaging and working closely with customers to deliver the desired contractual outcomes within the requirements and timelines provided.
