Leidos Military & Veterans Health Solutions Group is seeking an experienced Project Portfolio Manager (PPM) to oversee the management of the existing project portfolio, supporting the solution strategy of defense health, and the Department of Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization (DHMSM) Program, a highly visible $4.3B single award IDIQ vehicle that provides support to the Defense Health Agency. The DHMSM program is the DoD’s leading program designed to deploy a modern electronic health record (EHR) system across the United States and around the globe. Leidos, with core partners Cerner, Accenture, and Henry Schein, will support the DHMS Program Executive Office (PEO) and the Defense Health Agency in the global deployment of a modernized EHR that will deliver improved system capability to the DoD whenever and wherever healthcare is required. The DHMSM system will provide important health IT capabilities to 9.5 million active military, their families, and their beneficiaries. The system will replace the current EHR AHLTA/CHCS, which Leidos built and currently provides sustainment services at locations around the world.
The Project Portfolio Manager (PPM) will oversee the management of the existing project portfolio and coordinate the addition of new projects into the portfolio. The PPM will be responsible for orchestration of various program functions to enable an executive view into portfolio status, utilizing information technology solutions, and to establish and maintain a repeatable review and intake process for new efforts. Active project portfolio management scope includes the coordination of 50+ projects of varying size, many of which are of a technical nature (change to the existing system, introduction of a new capability, defect / problem resolution, and system upgrades). Impact of the projects is over the entire SDLC, from requirements and design, configuration/building, testing, training, functional/workflow impacts, and preparation for deployment and sustainment. Ongoing activities include rebalancing schedules and resources when plans change, collective status reporting, portfolio-level issues and risks (individual projects have their own project managers), and coordination with customer counterpart(s). New additions to the portfolio will need to run through the program intake process, which involves solution development, estimating, plan/schedule development, costing, and proposal submissions; and then overlaying the new request on top of the existing portfolio by virtue of priority, resource availability, and external dependencies; this work will be done by others, but the PPM must be aware of the queue of requests and prepare for assessment. Once the solution and plan are known, the PPM will coordinate with the LPDH and customer teams to identify a realistic schedule and resource plan for the new effort, taking into consideration the full breadth of the active portfolio projects already underway. The PPM will have a support staff to assist with these efforts.
