Job Description

SAIC has an immediate opening for a Requirements Manager with a background in Information Technology (IT) Network Engineering services to assess Request for Changes (RFCs), Requested Items (RITMs), customer capacity requests, organization commits, and service provider cost impact assessments.  The successful applicant will participate within a team of network Systems Engineers and Technical Advisors (SETAs) overseeing the design, delivery, enhancement, and recapitalization of a multi-site environment leveraging Routers, Firewalls, VPNs, Cloud and associated technologies/services.  Candidates will leverage their background in implementing network infrastructure service provisioning of backbones, CANs/LANs, Access Controls, VLANs, and similar network related solutions to assess service provider cost, schedule, and scope impacts.



On the Job Training will be provided in the customer’s specific Systems Engineering processes and knowledge domain, but the successful candidate must be able to:

  • Successfully work independently as well as within a team
  • Proactively coordinate, research, and evaluate customer proposed needs (i.e., RFCs)
  • Work with Service Portfolio Managers (SPfMs) and service providers to perform technical assessments of proposed customer needs to determine if the request is compatible with standard service offerings, or represents new service type requirement for the service provider
  • Assess and document the service provider’s potential program cost, schedule, and scope commitment impacts associated with proposed need (i.e., RFC)
  • Strategically assess the customer’s vision against customer needs to seek opportunities to influence and improve service delivery options
  • Assist the customer with evaluating service demand against available service provider capacities in an effort to help prioritize expansion verses recapitalization investments
  • Perform as a change agent focused on translating customer requirements (i.e., RFCs) into service provider tasking (i.e., RITMs)
  • Perform as a commitment manager to ensure service requests (i.e., RITMs) are within the previously agreed to scope commitments (i.e., RFCs) to prevent customer scope creep
  • When scope creep is detected, inform customers of the need for updated scope commitments (i.e., RFCs) and appropriate inter-organization funding, or Un-Funded Requests (UFRs) definitions
  • Capture, document, and present cost, schedule, and scope analysis, findings, and projected commitment statuses to decision makers
