Bechtel Corporation DEP Master Data Management & Data Governance System Admin in Reston, Virginia

Requisition ID: 206775


The D igital E nterprise P rogram (DEP) has been envisioned as a Corporate Initiative to facilitate a transformation of the company from a departmental, document-centric, and function/discipline optimized EPC execution model to an integrated, data-centric, and TIC optimized EPC execution model. Key aspects of DEP are: Digital (Data Centric), Enterprise (Integrated & Standardized) and Program (Transformative). Data-Centric Execution (DCE) is the methodology of creating, processing, managing, controlling and delivering information in the medium of data rather than via documents. The focus of DEP is the transformation of EPC Work Process, Tools, team member roles and responsibilities to support the transfer of trust and authority of information from documents to data resulting in a step change in project performance (craft time on tools).

DEP has established a three-year roadmap to facilitate this transformation. The roadmap is broken into two phases. Phase 1 will be completed in 2018 and will cover work process requirements and phase 2 will implement the future state requirements for organization, process and tools. To successfully implement the future state work processes, organization and systems, DEP will require our best talent, future leaders and key SMEs.
