10 System of Record – complete by 9/2011 Enhanced EODS (incl. provisioning/pre-hire) – complete by 9/2011 Integrated Talent Management application –Competency management –Performance management –Workforce planning –Career development Building identity management (PDS) –Employees –Contractors –Service-oriented architecture (SOA) Upgraded LMS to Plateau 6.2 Portal: employees and managers 10 Recent / Current Projects

11 Agenda Welcome/introductions/ground rules Background Acquisition strategy/timeline HR Connect concept of operations Wrap-up 11

12 Two contract vehicles: –Operations, maintenance and improvement (firm fixed price contract via TIPSS-4) –New projects (firm fixed price and time and materials BPA via GSA, Schedule 70) Goals: –Maintain effective and efficient operation –Maximize flexibility and innovation: customers gain more value for their money 12 Current Thinking – Acquisition Strategy

13 Manages relationships Sets the vision Works with non-Treasury customers and Treasury Bureaus Works with contractor partners through hands-on engagement, and on-site 13 HR Connect Government Team

14 Management Technical Architecture (System Administration, Database Administration, Network Administration) Development (Functional Requirements, Design, Development, and Deployment) Deployments for New Customers Configuration Management Functional Enhancements System Problem Reports Pay Adjustments Interfaces Tier 3 Support Includes optional CLINS, e.g. O&M of new customers Software patches and upgrades Usability Improvements and Web Design Deployments for new customers Emerging Technologies New Projects Usability Improvements and Web Design One vendor for Operations/Maintenance Performance Work Statement/Firm, Fixed Price Multiple Vendors for New Work (Blanket Purchase Agreement/Firm, Fixed Price and Time and Materials) 14 Contract Components
