STATEMENT OF WORK

SECTION 1.0 PROJECT OVERVIEW

1.1. The Colorado Department of Education (hereafter referred to as "CDE" or "the Department") is contracting with uWork.com, Inc. dba Covendis (the Contractor), 200 Walker Ave St. SW, Atlanta GA, 30313, to provide a Senior Business Analyst (BA) CONTRACTOR NAME from VENDOR NAME to support and perform all business analyst activities for a federally funded grant Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) project currently underway. The purpose of this position is to provide staff augmentation. The SLDS project has many facets of which the Sr. BA may be asked to participate which may include automation of currently manual operations, data movement, reporting requirements, development, and governance. However, the primary focus areas for this role will be to work with the project stakeholders to thoroughly define use cases that will prove or disprove the success of specific CDE programs.

1.2. CDE anticipates that the term of this project will run from as soon as the position can be filled and contracted through the completion of all the business analyst related tasks. The business analyst tasks may end prior to the end of the project. Currently the project and the funding for the project ends February 28, 2023. However, two one-year extensions are possible. (The project may be completed prior to this time as determined by CDE.) 

SECTION 2.0 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

2.1. The Contractor shall work closely and collaboratively with the Department's Project Management Office and the Senior Project Manager for the SLDS project (or designees) to discuss suggestions or issues as they occur and incorporate suggestions or guidance from the Department while performing the work described within this Statement of Work, the purchase order, and the vendor contract.

2.2. The Contractor shall coordinate and prioritize all work to ensure that all deadlines are met.
