IMPACT (Information Management Protecting Adults and Children in Texas) is the computerized casework system all DFPS programs use to record intakes and document investigations and all case actions. A current modernization project is underway to transform a 21-year-old system into a modern web application to enable DFPS and external partners to enter and update case records more proficiently. This system is fundamental to the Child Protective Services (CPS) Division.

A Worker is requested to perform Project Management responsibilities to lead the CPS program through their Transformation activities that have implications for the IMPACT system and the modernization efforts. The Worker will also serve as a single point of contact for technology-related project communications between CPS and DFPS IT. The role will be responsible for high-level coordination of (a) multiple, concurrent IMPACT projects, (b) identification and prioritization of business processes/functions that need to be redesigned before system specifications can be developed, (c) planning and scheduling of CPS staff resources to support business process work, system design sessions, design review, and user testing, and (d) communication and training plans, scheduling, and execution.
The Worker will work closely with key CPS leaders, CPS IT Liaisons, other designated internal program staff, and additional contractor staff working on this effort.  The Worker will also work in concert with designated IT staff on business process redesign documentation that meets both CPS program user and IT needs, and ensure IMPACT system requirements and design specifications are clearly articulated for development.  The Worker will help ensure the CPS Use Cases are fully documented and program project plans stay on track.
