Qualifications

QUALIFICATIONS REQUIREMENTS: Applicants will be assessed against qualifications which fall into two areas: Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) and Mandatory Technical Qualifications (MTQs). Failure to provide a separate narrative statement which describes fully and concisely how your experience meets the competencies described in the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) and Mandatory Technical Qualifications will eliminate you from consideration.

EXECUTIVE CORE QUALIFICATIONS: You will be assessed against the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs). They are designed to assess executive experience and potential - not technical expertise. They measure whether you have the broad executive skills needed in a variety of senior executive positions. Failure to meet a qualification requirement will disqualify an applicant. (Each must be addressed separately in your Supplemental Narrative Statement. The ECQs must not exceed 10 pages.)

More information on these core qualifications are available at http://www.opm.gov/ses/recruitment/ecq.asp

The ECQs describe the leadership skills needed to succeed as an SES; they also reinforce the concept of an "SES corporate culture." Refer to the OPM Guide to SES Qualifications for specific information and guidance on the ECQ requirements, the C-C-A-R model, and examples of good qualifications statements at the website: http://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/senior-executive-service/reference-materials/guidetosesquals_2012.pdf

(Note: Current career Senior Executive Service (SES); former career Senior Executive Service (SES) who are reinstatement-eligible; and graduates of OPM-certified Candidate Development Programs are not required to address the ECQs, but must address the Mandatory Technical Qualifications.)

Applicants who use "see resume" as a response will not receive consideration for the position.

MANDATORY TECHNICAL QUALIFICATIONS:

For this position applicants must address the following mandatory technical qualifications:
  • Experience presenting, defending, and negotiating a wide range of policy issues focusing on financial management, budget formulation, oversight, and audit processes in the U.S. government and UN. This includes related international briefings, congressional hearings, meetings and events involving other government agencies, representatives of foreign governments, and/or senior international organization officials.
  • Comprehensive understanding of the structure and process for implementing U.S. foreign affairs, budgetary and expenditure programs. This includes collaboration with key interagency stakeholders, the Office of Management and Budget, and Congressional authorizers and appropriators .
