Job Description:
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) mission is to protect and enhance Oregon's fish and wildlife and their habitats for use and enjoyment by present and future generations. Consequently, ODFW resource management operations are extremely broad and complex, and rely on information from a number of sources.

This lack of a framework results in significant information inefficiencies, inconsistencies, inaccessibility, ignorance, and loss. ODFW is seeking an IT Project Coordinator/Manager to assist ODFW's Natural Resources Information Management Program Managers with architecting a project and implementation plan to create a corporate resource information management system(s) and managing some of the early steps to efficiently and effectively develop the system. These initial efforts will guide the creation of a system that is extensible and scalable, as well as functional, useful, comprehensive, consistent, accessible, and institutionally integrated into ODFW operations.
