1. Project name: PKII+

2. Project description:
The project has the aim to remove the PKI token (used for singing, authentication and encryption) from Uniper. In order to achieve this the project needs to provide clear guidance to stakeholders and proper communication to end-users. As part of the replacement we need to manage technical dependencies, advertise existing replacing technologies and expand the capabilities for Adobe Sign. The project will support stakeholders to migrated their dependencies and solve them. Alongside with that we will develop and implement a long term archiving solution in order to stay compliant with regulatory requirements. To fulfill some remaining requirements we will implement also a small scale new PKI modern solution. Alongside the project implementation we will also continue to deliver smaller improvements to the PKI landscape until we can switch it off.

The services mentioned in the task description will be provided within the framework of an agile development method.

Planned project duration (start/end date): The initiative is a multiyear project spanning from 2021 to 2023.

3. Background to the assignment:
The external consultant has a unique position compared to the client's internal project staff and provides significantly different services than the internal staff. Uniper doesn't have any internal resources that can properly fulfill the tasks with the required skills.

4. Detailed description of the agile method/services:

The services shall be provided within the framework of an agile development method. The concrete activities required in each case to implement the services commissioned shall be agreed iteratively between the parties within the framework of sprint meetings and implemented by the consultant within the respective sprints following the sprint meetings. Prior to each sprint meeting, the consultant shall independently check, on the basis of its professional expertise, which individual services are reasonable and feasible within the scope of the assignment in the respective sprint. The sprints each have a duration of 2 weeks, so that the sprint meetings take place at intervals of every week. Within the individual sprints, the contracting parties shall coordinate the respective technical requirements for the services to be provided in weekly meetings in order to achieve the compatibility of the individual components of the Adobe Sign. The technical requirements for the services to be provided are assessed by the consultant on the basis of its own technical assessment. After completion of a Sprint, the Parties shall conduct a ?Sprint Review'' in which the consultant reports on the feasibility and status of the services performed by it in the previous Sprint and makes a recommendation on how to proceed with regard to the services that proved to be unfeasible in the respective Sprint. All of the meetings and exchanges described above shall take place exclusively in the presence of a central contact person named by Uniper, who shall coordinate the project on our internal side. The organisation and scheduling of the meetings described above in which the consultant is involved shall be organised and carried out by the consultant and coordinated with Uniper.

The consultant will take the role of the Product Owner
