project management
Explanation:
Gotta look at the whole thing:
"....the implementation and operational phases, in terms of assistance with project management or as the integrator of the overall solution..."

(Although here "implementation" looks like a separate thing, it is of course part of the compound term consisting of the implementation phase and the operational phase.)

U.S. technojargon loves to stack leading adjectives (my all-time favorite is "field-effect transistor bucket-brigade device"), so something like "overall systems integrator" would also be acceptable and understood.

Cheers,
