These positions are contingent upon award of the contract.
Support the development of the Financial and Acquisition Segment Architecture that is in compliance with the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) and VA Architecture Framework (VAAF). The Architecture support shall leverage a series of standards and reference models in compliance with FEAF and VAAF. The architecture shall be developed using FEAF (v2.0+), the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) (v2.02) and other Fit-For-Purpose (FFP) formats.
The Contractor shall review existing Architecture methodology that enables a repeatable agile process that supports the development of integrated architecture domains and linkages with core financial management and acquisition support systems. The Contractor shall review existing current, interim, and target state architecture information for analysis to ensure traceability across business, data, organizational, security and system/interfaces domains. The Contractor shall also update existing Architecture information as needed to ensure accuracy and completeness.
The Contractor shall provide recommendations on the interim and target state implementation plans that are aligned and synergistic to other Architecture Segments (i.e. Health) and the Enterprise Architecture.
The Contractor shall support the execution of the Architecture Strategy and shall review established Architecture Governance to provide technical feedback on the design, development, and deployment of the Architecture/Segment Architecture including over each lifecycle. The Contractor shall make recommendations to Architecture Governance structure within the Segment if improvements are necessary.
