NH Systems Development Division (NHV)

The Systems Development Division (NHV) provides project management leadership, in coordination with product owners, for the requirements collection, development and major enhancements of Information Technology (IT) applications and systems. These applications are lifecycle, multi-office, single office, or stand-alone applications. NHV staff, in coordination with the Acquisition Services Division (NAA), assist with the development of the acquisition strategy for IT application projects.

Project Managers in NHV use NARA's Systems Development Lifecycle document and standardized project management practices to direct, and manage project teams that are responsible for developing and implementing applications in NARA. NHV Project Managers are responsible for cost, schedule, quality, communications, and risk management for applications. NHV project management team members (in coordination with staff from the IT Policy and Administration Division (NHP), Information Technology Security Staff (NHI), Policy and Planning Staff (NPOL) and product owners) coordinate review of data, security, and usability issues for the applications.

If an application is to be turned over to the Information Technology Services Division (NHT) for full operation and production, NHV project management team members assist product owners in the creation of memorandums of understanding and service level agreements.
