The Knowledge Management / Decision Support (KMDS) Version 2 provides Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) stakeholders a decision making foundation based on key pieces of functionality – Document and Data Repository; User Action Inbox; System Directory; Capability Requirement Document Submission, Staffing, and Commenting; Integrated Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) Calendar; Studies; Advanced Search; Functional Capabilities Boards (FCB) home pages and dashboard; Capability Gap Assessment (CGA); End-to-End Joint Urgent/Emergent Operational Need Processing (JUON/JEON); and Joint Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities, and Policy Change Request (DCR) Tracking.
The Joint Staff migrated from a custom Oracle-based solution to the current version in 2013. The migration deliberately did not address data quality, and KMDS v2 suffers from different data standards from the migration and poor data quality overall. In addition, poor records management processes have inhibited users’ ability to distinguish archived working documents from the final documents. Metadata for documents is also stored within .bin files, restricting the ability of the system to present data across capability requirement portfolios in any meaningful way. In general, the situation limits the ability to find meaningful information outside of the capability requirement document staffing process.
Specific Task Overview:
The scope of this project is to transition existing data from KMDS v1 and KMDS v2 to a new data standard.
Required Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
Candidate must have a current final Top Secret clearance, verifiable in JPAS.
Must be IAT Level II certified, OR, willing to take and pass BOTH a Security+ CE certification (or equivalent), AND an OS/CE certification (examples include: MCSE, CCNA, RHCE, MTA, or Oracle 10g).
Education and Experience:
Bachelors’ degree from an accredited college or university within a relevant curriculum or major field of study, plus (6) years of task related experience, OR
An Associate’s degree from a college or university within a relevant curriculum or major field of study, plus eight (8) years of task related experience, OR
An applicable training certificate issues in accordance with guidelines provided by the software vendor (i.e. Oracle 9i) from an accredited training institution plus twelve (12) years of task related experience.
