Position Overview

POSITION POSTING/MARKETING STATEMENT: Information in this statement is NOT intended to be all-encompassing or to address all responsibilities of the position.

This PSC seeks application developer services to complete project-specific objectives for ICJIA’s InfoNet System, an Internet-based custom application used by more than 100 victim service providers throughout Illinois to track crime victim services anonymously. ICJIA received a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, to support planned objectives for this project known as InfoNet Stepping Forward (ISF), which ends September 30, 2022. The ISF project aims to enhance the application’s capacity to help victim service providers (users): 1) comply with federal reporting requirements; 2) conduct more comprehensive case management services with victims/clients; and 3) facilitate more meaningful evaluation of programs and services to crime victims. Project tasks include adding new data fields; converting some existing data fields from their current single timepoint format to be collected at multiple timepoints, and building new reporting tools within the application. Duties will include designing, developing, testing, debugging, and implementing new application functions and reporting tools within InfoNet, including drafting system documentation for these enhancements.

Job Responsibilities

1)  Work with ICJIA team to expand InfoNet’s reporting capabilities to meet requirements of two primary federal funders of Illinois victim service providers: 1) Office for Victims of Crime’s Performance Measurement Tool (OVC’s PMT); and 2) Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Annual Performance Report (APR) and Emergency Solutions Grants – Consolidated Annual Performance & Evaluation Report (ESG-CAPER). This will entail clearly defined expansions to data collection to ensure that InfoNet can be considered a comparable database according to HUD standards, as well as building electronic reports to meet standards required with minimal input by users.

3. Expand collection and reporting capabilities of data capturing impact of services according to user-defined business requirements. This will require building some new fields and capability to track existing and new fields at multiple timepoints. This must occur in a manner that is visible to end users in their browser as well as in reporting, with appropriate security safeguards.

3. Draft system documentation for the above enhancements
