RequirementsConditions of Employment
- As a Compliance Policy Analyst in TES, you will have the opportunity to assist in monitoring the compliance of companies with NSAs signed under the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), an inter-agency executive branch committee where DHS is a voting member.

Similarly, the NSAs include a diverse array of provisions, such as measures that restrict the governance structure of the companies; restrictions on foreign physical or logical access to the U.S. businesses' facilities, networks, and data; controls on foreign access to technology; cybersecurity controls; requirements for U.S. government audits and inspections, and other measures.
- In coordination with senior team members, you will assess deliverables provided by companies for completeness, accuracy, and timeliness; engage in periodic meetings with companies to monitor their compliance with their national security obligations; identify non-compliance by the parties and proactively develop solutions to re-mediate that non-compliance; and suggest and implement process improvements. You will coordinate these products and workstreams with key stakeholders including both DHS components such as CISA as well as interagency partners (e.g. Department of Justice, Department of Defense, Department of Treasury, as well as other Federal Departments and Agencies).
