Specialize experience GS 12:
You must have at least one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-11 grade level in the Federal Service. Specialized experience is described as demonstrated experience applying engineering expertise in one of the following disciplines (civil, electrical, mechanical, structural, or architecture) sufficient to conduct construction site inspections and ensure the proper use and application of construction materials and equipment. Examples of specialized experience, include but are not limited to, experience conducting site reviews to assess workmanship and proper use of materials; experience adhering to received guidance to support construction and/or engineering initiatives.
Specialize Experience GS 13:
You must have at least one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-12 grade level in the Federal Service.Specialized experience is described as demonstrated experience applying engineering expertise in two of the following disciplines (civil, electrical, mechanical, structural, or architecture) sufficient to conduct construction site inspections and ensure the proper use and application of construction materials and equipment. Examples of specialized experience, include but are not limited to, experience conducting reviews and analyses sufficient to analyze, identify and resolve construction conflicts for large scale construction projects; experience conducting construction inspections sufficient to assess workmanship and proper use of materials.
