Programme Assurance Manager (Testing/Strategy/Transition)

Methods are looking for a Programme Assurance Manager to work on a 6 week short term project with a client. The role will be remote based, and has been confirmed to fall outside IR35.

This piece of work is focused on all aspects of Imports (Animals, Plants and Infrastructure). To achieve the outcomes in the time available, consultancy is required to take the body of information available and translate it into a model that supports decision-making and contingency planning.

The core activities are:

Test Strategy

Draft a test strategy for 1 July Import Controls Delivery which will;

- Be a documented strategy that can gain auditable approval and buy in from external stakeholders.

- Set out entry criteria for testing

- Create a Matrix of scenarios (user stories) and threshold criteria

- Focus as a priority on the end-to-end experience/customer journey, reviewing process maps to ensure they are robust, comprehensive, and ready to be tested

- Be a complete list of every aspect that needs to be tested ahead of implementation (IT, Support, Business readiness, policy compliance, communications, reporting etc).

- Contain a clear articulation of who is responsible for what within Imports in the lead up to 1 July (and timings). Signed off by all stakeholders.

- Have been reviewed with key stakeholders to validate the approach

- Be a complimentary strategy which works with the BPDG Test strategy

- Set out exit (Success) criteria for testing.

To deliver the activities set out above, consultancy support with proven experience in rapid engagement, analysis and operational testing in government is required. The outputs will need to be defined, designed, assembled, and reported in a condensed timeframe and will require high quality project management, testing and stakeholder engagement skills.

A combination of capacity and capability related challenges preclude internal staff from delivering the intended outcomes, however it is expected that knowledge of recommendations and proposed adjustments to processes and tools is transferred as part of successful handover of engagement outputs.

Successful delivery of each of the outcomes will be evident through their approval by the directorate and ministers and knowledge transfer will be measured through the completion of a knowledge transfer record sign off by the individual(s) responsible for taking the work forward.
