Our Valued Public sector Client requires a Senior SAP Security Business Process Consultant (R&A SAP) to Build an SAP based Access Control framework & a unified R&A strategy by integrating a Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) Access Control solution to address access risks in that systems landscape.  


The client's system has evolved over time, merging two SAP instances, and integrating increasing functionality on an ongoing basis, including the supply system and functionality to manage real property. The R&A for the system was developed and adapted at each of these major changes without an overarching R&A strategy or framework, which led to different and conflicting R&A processes and authorities being implemented within the system. The lack of an overarching strategy and framework has resulted in serious shortfalls/gaps in the management of access, including improper segregation of duties, inappropriate security authorities, ineffective control, unstructured roles and highly tailored R&A profiles that are difficult to manage and change. In the current situation it is impossible to manage R&A efficiently and build/support automated access controls and monitoring services.

The required services of this work will include SAP Finance R&A rationalization, eventually utilizing SAP GRC, and assistance with day to day R&A analysis, and will require the Contractor to perform the following tasks:


a. Assist the client with SAP access management and role management (role structure in line with the business processes);
b. Assist the client with the R&A Rationalization Project;
c. Assist in the identification of adequate controls for roles and access in SAP (required in the Roles and Authorization rationalization project);
d. Assist in identifying segregation of duties concerns for users with multiple accounts across different modules;
e. Assist with the creation of Segregation of Duties (SoD) policy and procedures;
f. Assist in designing finance business roles and operational roles free of non-mitigated SoD violations across the systems landscape;
g. Assist with implementing R&A in line with SAP best practices and alignment to S/4 Hana as much as possible;
h. Track “lessons learned”;
i. Provide knowledge transfer to the finance employees on R&A best practices.

Must haves:
  • 6 years of R&A experience within SAP systems in the last 10 years
  • At least 2 projects for the Canadian government completed in the last 10 years
