Qualification requirements in the vacancy announcements are based on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Qualification Standards Handbook, which contains federal qualification standards. This handbook is available on the Office of Personnel Management's website located at http://www.opm.gov/qualifications.

    This position is being advertised at the ZP-0089-IV, which encompasses the GS-13/14 grade levels. Applicants must possess one year of specialized experience at the GS-12 or equivalent band level.  Specialized experience is defined as: 1.  Experience working in the Emergency Management field, 2. Capturing, analyzing, and communicating public safety desired requirements for products and services (i.e. Identity Credentialing and Access Management (ICAM) and Provisioning, Next Generation 9-1-1,  Wireless broadband devices and accessories, Machine to Machine and Internet of Things, Quality of Service, Priority and Preemption,  Mission Critical Services,  Location Based Services,  Incident management tools, Local control tools, Deployables, Public safety application onboarding) and 3. Developing and implementing outreach and engagement strategies to gather input from the public safety user community.  This experience and identifying types of products and services you have experience with must be clearly defined in your resume.

    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; religious; 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.

    Substitution of education in lieu of specialized experience may not be used for this grade level.

    ICTAP candidates will be eligible if it is determined that they have exceeded the minimum qualifications for the position by attaining at least a rating of 85 out of 100. Information about CTAP and ICTAP eligibility is on the Office of Personnel Management’s Career Transition Resources website at: http://www.opm.gov/ctap.

    You will be evaluated for this job based on how well you meet the qualifications above.

    Your resume, optional cover letter and supporting documentation will be reviewed to determine if you meet the minimum qualification requirements for the position. Under the provisions of the Direct-Hire Authority (DHA), rating, ranking and veterans' preference does not apply; therefore, your responses to the questionnaire will not be scored. All applicants who meet the minimum qualification and specialized experience requirements, as defined in the job opportunity announcement, will be referred for selection consideration. While veterans' preference does not apply in DHA, preference eligibles are encouraged to submit their supporting documentation (DD-214 stating disposition of discharge or character of service, VA letter, SF-15, etc.).

    Applicants applying as CTAP/ICTAP candidates and determined CTAP/ICTAP eligible, must exceed the minimum qualification requirements to be referred under this selection priority placement program by attaining at least a rating of 85 out of 100. For those CTAP/ICTAP candidates who meet the minimum qualifications, we will compare your resume, optional cover letter and supporting documentation to your responses on the scored occupational questionnaire (True/False, Yes/No, Multiple Choice questions). Your resume and/or optional cover letter must support your responses to the scored occupational questionnaire, or your score may be lowered. CTAP/ICTAP eligibles who are not determined well qualified by scoring at least 85 will not be referred under the CTAP/ICTAP selection priority placement program; however, will be referred for selection consideration with other minimally qualified applicants.  Current civil service employees would, therefore, be given new appointments and may require a new probationary period.

    KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND ABILITIES (KSA'S): Your qualifications will be evaluated on the basis of your level of knowledge, skills and abilities and/or competencies in the following areas:

    • Knowledge of the Public Safety telecommunications sector, broadband activities, and communication operations. 
    • Ability to capture, analyze and communicate public safety desired requirements for products and services.
    • Ability to evaluate regional, state/territory, and local public safety telecommunications programs and issues.
    • Ability to advise and assist management in the formulation, development, and implementation of the outreach and engagement strategy.
    • Ability to present concise and clear written information and opinions to support critical decisions within an agency.
