Awards Management Systems (AMS) include technology, processes, people, and information (data) working together to enable effective awards management at the IRC. OTIS is the IRC’s custom awards management technology. In 2022, AMU conducted the Awards Management Systems Assessment Project (Phase 1) in, which informed short-term and long-term plans for AMS transformation.

We are now embarking on Phase 2, requirements gathering and analysis of potential solutions to meet our technology needs for the next 10+ years. The scope of Phase 2 includes requirements gathering for two major areas at the IRC: Awards Management (full lifecycle) and Partnerships.

In addition to supporting requirements gathering activities, the Business Analyst will support the project team to understand capabilities and limitations of existing IRC technologies as well as assessing the potential for new solutions. The IRC is sourcing external consultant services to support this work; the Business Analyst would work closely with the Project Lead, consultant(s), and business partners around the organization.

This role can be flexible, to enable the person to grow professionally while also contributing to an exciting systems transformation project. It is envisioned that specific job responsibilities can be tailored or expanded based on interest and desired growth areas.
