Loudoun County is currently seeking a talented, highly motivated individual to serve as the Project Manager/Coordinator (PM) on a commercial off -the-shelf (COTS) replacement project for one of the County's largest custom applications. This position will require coordination and communication with county staff from multiple departments and program areas, business partners (internal and external), vendors, County Administration, and the Board of Supervisors. Critical to the success of this position is the ability to effectively communicate project status and requirements to the Executive Sponsor, and the Steering and Executive Committees for the project.
