The system is built on an outdated version of the Ruby on Rails framework (2.3) that no longer receives maintenance or security patches. It is necessary to upgrade to a more recent version of the framework in order to receive continued support and ensure application security. Along with the version update, the team is looking at a few enhancements that will meet new needs of the forest officers and leadership. The person hired for this position would be asked to validate and update already collected business requirements and then work with the MNIT/DNR project team in the capacity of a Business Analyst through successful implementation of the final product.
