    1. Skill in applying advanced IT concepts, principles, methods, industry standards and practices to develop and interpret policies.
    2. Knowledge of Federal acquisition management policies, procedures, regulations, and contracting methods to evaluate contractor proposals and monitor contract performance.

    • We will verify your answers to the questions in your resume.  If your resume doesn’t support your answers, we may lower your score, which could place you in a lower category.
    • Within each category, veterans will receive selection priority over non-veterans.
