Job Details

Our Burnaby area client is a leader in the support and provision of healthcare services to the British Columbia public.

The client is seeking a Quality Assurance-Test Lead on a contract basis to support their Enterprise Business Solutions team.


Project Description:

The client currently employs a number of disparate solutions to meet its ERP Solution and Service needs. These systems include Oracle Inc.’s PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM) and Financials and Supply Management (FCSM). The PeopleSoft components were initially implemented in 1998 at BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), followed by several other agencies implementing separate instances of PeopleSoft within their organizations.  In 2003, these implementations were consolidated into one PeopleSoft instance.

The PeopleSoft components are beyond their service life and are currently not supported by Oracle Inc. The client has obtained the required application support services from an external provider, supplemented by its own internal IMITS department and business area resources. Despite this support, given the legacy nature of the PeopleSoft components, the client faces certain business risks, inefficient processes and difficulty integrating with other business areas, including finance.

Given these circumstances, the client has determined the need to adopt an integrated ERP Solution that will singularly support the majority of its back-office business needs, with zero to minimal customizations. PHSA is looking to streamline, standardize and consolidate functions across its business areas to achieve efficiencies and reduce the ERP Solution costs and complexities.


Anticipated services include:

  • Develop test plan and strategy for functional and integrated end-to-end testing of the whole ERP solution and its downstream systems.
  • Review requirements and work with the Business Analyst team, business SME workstreams, and vendor to develop test scenarios and test cases
  • Prepare and organize each cycle of testing during Functional Testing and Integrated Systems Testing phases of the project
  • Modify test plan and schedule based on progress of build, testing and environment availability.
  • Work with vendor and Data Migration team to determine scope data to be loaded for testing cycles
  • Participate in defect triaging
  • Develop test-related guidelines, track adherence to those and contribute to  document best practices
  • Build up and lead the testing team to the success of project
  • Define and develop the scope of testing within the context of each release / delivery and overall testing strategy for the ERP project.
  • Effectively communicate project expectations to team members and stakeholders in a timely and clear fashion.
  • Deliver testing progress reports, proposals, and requirements documentation.
  • Coach, mentor, motivate and supervise testing team members, and influence them to take positive action and accountability for their assigned work.


Maximum number of candidate submissions: 2
