PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS: This position is primarily sedentary with some walking, standing, bending, and carrying or lightweight items (eg. folders, claims files, etc.)


This position has a position-sensitivity level of Public Trust-Low Risk. Selections made under this announcement are conditioned upon favorable adjudication of a National Agency Check with written Inquiries (NACI) per VA Handbook 0710. An investigation will be conducted after the effective date of the selection. An individual currently holding the appropriate clearance does not require additional investigation. An individual receiving unfavorable adjudication is ineligible to remain in this position.

To qualify for this position, applicants must meet all requirements by the closing date of this announcement, 04/17/2018.

Time-in-grade: Applicants who are current Federal employees and have held a GS grade any time in the past 52 weeks must also meet time-in-grade requirements.

GS - 11: 52 weeks at the GS-09 level.

AND

Specialized Experience: Applicants must have one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the next lower grade (GS-09) in the normal line of progression for the occupation in the organization that has equipped them with the particular knowledge, skills and abilities to successfully perform the duties of the position. Examples of specialized experience include program analyst, technical or other work that included the study, analysis or evaluation leading to the development of managerial or administrative policies practices, or procedures; administrative officer or assistant, or other work that demonstrated knowledge of an organization or its functions.

OR

Applicants may substitute education for the experience required at the GS-11: 3 full years of progressively higher level graduate education or Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree in a related field.

OR

Applicants may also combine education and experience to qualify. To calculate, first identify the percentage of required education you have earned. When substituting you can use graduate level education you have earned beyond a Bachelor's Degree. Then identify the percentage of required experience you possess. Add the two percentages. The total percentage must equal at least 100 percent to qualify at the GS-11. (1) For example, an applicant who has 75 semester hours of education (i.e. 15 semester hours beyond the second year, which is the equivalent of 25% of the required education) and has 9 months of specialized experience, would have the 1 year combination required for the position. OR (2) For example, an applicant who has 9 semester hours of graduate level education (i.e. 50% of graduate education required) and 6 months of creditable specialized experience (i.e. 50% of the required experience) would equal 100% of the required experience for the position.


A transcript must be submitted with your application if you are basing all or part of your qualifications on education.
Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religions; spiritual; community; student; social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience.

Note: A full year of work is considered to be 35-40 hours of work per week. Part-time experience will be credited on the basis of time actually spent in appropriate activities. Applicants wishing to receive credit for such experience must indicate clearly the nature of their duties and responsibilities in each position and the number of hours a week spent in such employment.
