Job Description :

2 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA - 30303

The Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS), Office of Facilities and Support Services, Transportation Services Section, is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Project Manager in Atlanta, Georgia.
TRIP$ is a web-based consumer registration and trip ordering system that was developed in-house by the DHS Office of Information Technology (OIT TRIP$ currently enables human service providers (HSPs) to order, modify, cancel and approve transportation services for consumers they have registered in the system. Contractors, referred to as Transportation Providers (TP) in TRIP$, use TRIP$ to access all trips orders as requested by assigned HSPs. Trip orders can be pulled for individual trips, or a manifest is available for use. TPs either provide the trips or assigns to subcontractors. After the trip is complete, the TP updates the status of the trip in TRIP$, the HSPs approve and the trip can move to “invoiced” status. Invoices are pulled from TRIP$, reviewed by applicable Regional Transportation Office staff, and used as part of the payment package submitted to the Office of Facilities and Support Services Transportation Services Section (OFSS TSS) in Atlanta for contractor payment.
Limited reports are available that provide data by Division and/or human service providers (HSP) on usage, consumers, and other data points. Office of Facilities and Support Services, Transportation Services Section utilizes internally generated reports and spreadsheets to provide detailed information on Coordinated Transportation.
