If you are experienced in contracting/procurement and are interested in a career with the Department of Commerce (DOC), this is the job for you! The historic mission of the Department of Commerce is "to foster, promote, and develop the foreign and domestic commerce" of the United States. This has evolved, as a result of legislative and administrative additions, to encompass broadly the responsibility to foster, serve, and promote the Nation's economic development and technological advancement. Recently, the creation of FirstNet was incorporated into this mission.
Subtitle B, Title VI of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-60) defines the governance of public safety spectrum and creates FirstNet, which is responsible for establishing a nationwide, interoperable public safety broadband network. FirstNet is an independent authority within NTIA, and led by a Board of Directors. The Secretary of Commerce appointed the Board in August 2012 with assistance from NTIA. The Board is responsible for taking all necessary actions to ensure the building, deployment, and operation of the nationwide public safety broadband network.
To start-up and maintain FirstNet, the Board is seeking services from a supervisory contract specialist to serve as a Deputy Director of Procurement for FirstNet. The position is located in the Office of Acquisition Management, Commerce Acquisition Solutions Division in Washington, DC, and is responsible for leading and overseeing a division that procures goods and services that significantly contribute to FirstNet’s’ mission, goals and objectives. You will act as a business consultant to program managers, advising them on critical decisions in planning for and acquiring goods and services needed by FirstNet. You will be instrumental in ensuring the United States Government establishes and maintains FirstNet through prudent contract awards and the monitoring of contract performance to ensure satisfactory progress and compliance with the terms and conditions of contracts. FirstNet will be acquiring in excess of $300 Million in wireless communications services, end user devices, and public safety applications, and other equipment and services. Acquisition is a major focus for FirstNet, since the federal government has few if any resources that will be needed for establishment and maintenance of the FirstNet network.
This position serves as the Deputy Director of FirstNet Procurement, Commerce Acquisition Solutions Division in the Office of Acquisition Management, in Washington, D.C. This position is being advertised at the band ZA-V. The band V is equivalent to grade GS-15. We would use your talents in our Department, Office of Acquisition Management, Office of Commerce Acquisition Solutions (CAS) where you would play a vital role in partnering with clients to execute successful acquisition solutions and financial assistance investments to advance the DOC mission.
