that handles all the EOBs (explanation of benefits), vouchers,
commissions, checks, bulk processing, and statements.. This new project is
called "EOB Preference" where people can choose electronic communication
instead of paper statements. This new option has required us to update our
processes to present statements and information on line instead of
printing. We will be using StreamWeaver to stream the docs and Perl
scripting is the wrapper for these StreamWeaver jobs. Specific files will
be sent through HTML streams rather than creating a hard document. There
are no functional specs on this project, although there is technical
design and a proof of concept complete. There is also only one person who
has expertise in Perl on this team, so there is a need for a contract
resource who can bring the Perl expertise not only to this project, but to
the documentation and the team to support this new functionality once it
goes live. This project will be located in either Seattle or Portland
interacting with a team in both locations.
