  • Assisting with processing contract close-out actions;
  • Compiling and extracting data for reports.
B. Education Substitution: Such education must demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to do the work. Education must be from a college or university accredited by an organization approved by the U.S. Department of Education. See http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/Search.aspx. If using education to meet basic qualifications, YOU MUST SUBMIT A TRANSCRIPT as supplemental documentation. To qualify based on education in lieu of experience, you must possess 4 years above high school in an accredited business, secretarial or technical school, junior college, college or university.

C.
