Date Posted: 04-13-2018
Since its founding in 2000, TeleSolv Consulting has been committed to helping organizations solve complex problems.  Our solutions integrate sound management principles with the most appropriate technologies to assist senior executives in effectively managing programmatic, schedule and technical risks. 

Our Company is seeking an experienced Project Manager, who will work on a full-time basis to supervise operational support staff at approximately six (6) locations. The Project Manager will be assigned to an office in Kansas City, MO.  This position requires regional travel (<10%).

Employee serves as a Project Manager to directly manage small projects (up to $150k) in support of the building repair and alteration (R&A) program for a field office team. Assignments include performing customer needs interviews, conducting studies, preparing construction cost estimates, confirming project requirements, developing Scopes of Work (SOW), specifications, and plans for projects. Serves as hands-on Construction Manager of assigned repair and alteration projects through all project stages (trigger to close-out) in existing buildings and facilities, such as multi-tenant office buildings, laboratories, warehouses, underground cave office and archival space, computer facilities, courthouses and historic buildings.
 
Assignments also include coordinating with multiple trade type contractors, general contractors, professional services contractors, and other specialist type contractors, as required to support design and construction activities. Assignments are made in the form of a designated project for which the scope, target completion date, and available funds must be defined. The project manager plans for and carries out projects independently with granted authority to act on own initiative on matters affecting the project, with the Contracting Officer having the ultimate authority. To be clear, the Project Manager does not have any authority to bind the federal government into a contractual relationship or approve funds outside those allotted for the current project. The project manager leads the project team to achieve project objectives throughout the project lifecycle (project initiation to closeout). They must ensure the project is planned, executed, and managed properly. The PM must plan, lead, communicate, resource, and, most importantly build team consensus and participation in all aspects of planning and executing a project. The Project Manager keeps the Field Office Director informed of progress, potentially controversial matters, or issues with an overall standpoint in terms of effectiveness in meeting project requirements.
