Responsibilities

WHAT DOES A SENIOR MANAGER DO? As a Senior Manager, generally a manager of managers, you will be responsible for the overall effective operation of a program. You will use your leadership skills and management techniques in the administration, planning, organizing, directing, controlling, and evaluation of activities to support accomplishments in the operation. In this role, you will also be responsible for preparation of annual work plans, semiannual and quarterly work schedules, accession schedules for staffing, production output projections, and other plans and controls for maintaining an efficient program. As a Senior Manager you will direct one of many agency wide efforts to deliver or further support the agency's mission and priorities, and will often times be involved in initiatives with extensive and substantial impact on the Nations taxpayers.

The Assistant Director (AD) will be responsible for IRS:CI's overall implementation and direction of the OCDETF program and the new Cyber-OCDETF program. The AD position is critical to representing IRS:CI's interests within the Executive Office of OCDETF and will serve as the senior representative for IRS:CI responsible for direction, development, and expansion of the Illicit Finance program. The Illicit Finance program also includes managing all the FIC and FAC programs within the OCDETF regions; developing national OCDETF initiatives; and advocating for IRS:CI priorities within OCDETF. The AD position is key to making funding and policy decisions; prioritizing financial charges in OCDETF cases; and advancing CPOT, RPOT, and King Pin Act nominations. The AD also works closely with Finance, ONDCP, U.S. Department of Justice, DEA's Special Operations Division, and the OCDETF Fusion Center as part of establishing those priorities and managing the funding IRS:CI receives for our contribution to the narcotics mission.

As a Senior Manager you will:
  • Exercise delegated managerial authority to oversee the overall planning, directing, and timely execution of a program, several program segments (each of which is managed through separate subordinate organizational units), or comparable staff functions, including development, assignment, and higher level clearance of goals and objectives for supervisors or managers of subordinate organizational unit or lower organizational levels.
  • Approve multi year and longer range work plans developed by the supervisors or managers of subordinate organizational units and subsequently manage the overall work to enhance achievement of the goals and objectives.
  • Oversee the revision of long range plans, goals and objectives for the work directed.
  • Manage the development of policy changes in response to changes in levels of appropriations or other legislated changes.
  • Manage organizational changes throughout the organization directed, or major change to the structure and content of the program or program segments directed.
  • Exercise discretionary authority to approve the allocation and distribution of funds in the organizations budget.
