In order to qualify for this position, applicants must have at least one
year of relevant specialized experience at or equivalent to the next lower
grade level (GS-14) in the Federal service. Specialized experience is defined
as demonstrated experience performing construction project management functions
sufficient to oversee, analyze, and evaluate construction, land acquisition and
disposal leave projects.
Examples of specialized experience include but are not limited to:
performing construction project planning activities to improve efficiency,
eliminate waste, cut cost, and improve productivity that result in positive
outcomes; managing teams and/or responsible in providing oversight for
construction design efforts to ensure efforts and plans are aligned to meet
milestones and projected budget expectations; experience in making timely and
effective decisions and produce results through effective implementation of
strategic planning and evaluative measurement tools.
NOTE: IN ADDITION TO MEETING THE
SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT(S) ABOVE APPLICANT MUST ALSO MEET THE BASIC
QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS LISTED BELOW.
Education requirements FOR
In order to qualify for this position, applicants must have professional
engineering degree, to be acceptable the curriculum must: (1) be in a school of
engineering with at least one curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Board
for Engineering and Technology (ABET) as a professional engineering curriculum;
or (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced
than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of
engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of
materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d)
thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties
of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g)
any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such
as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.
In order to qualify for this position, applicants must have combination
of education and experience, demonstrated by one of the following three
options: 1) Professional registration Current registration as a professional
engineer by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico; 2)
Specified academic courses Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours
of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and in
engineering that included the courses specified in the basic requirements; or
3) successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree in
engineering technology or in an appropriate professional field, e.g., physics,
architecture, computer science, or mathematics may be accepted in lieu of a
degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of
professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering
supervision and guidance. This experience should have included an established
plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering competence, or
several years of prior professional engineering-type experience, e.g., in

REQUIREMENTS FOR ARCHITECT:
In order to
qualify for this position, applicants must have successful completion of a full
4-year course of study in an accredited college or university leading to a
bachelor's degree or higher in architecture; or related field that included 60
semester hours of course work in architecture or related disciplines of which
at least (1) 30 semester hours were in architectural design, and (2) 6 semester
hours were in each of the following: structural technology, properties of materials
and methods of construction, and environmental control systems.
In order to
qualify for this position, applicants must have combination of education and
experience -- college-level education, training, and/or technical experience
that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the arts and sciences underlying
professional architecture, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and
practical, of the architectural principles, methods, and techniques and their
applications to the design and construction or improvement of buildings. The
adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by at least one of the
Curriculum: Degree in architectural engineering may be accepted as satisfying
in full the basic requirements, provided the completed course work in
architectural engineering provided knowledge, skills, and abilities
substantially equivalent to those provided in the courses specified in
paragraph A. The curriculum for a degree in either architecture or
architectural engineering covers function, esthetics, site, structure,
economics, mechanical-electrical, and other engineering problems related to the
design and construction of buildings primarily (but not exclusively) intended
to house human activities. The courses required for a degree in architecture
generally place emphasis upon planning, esthetics, and materials and methods of
construction, while the courses for an architectural engineering degree place
equal or greater weight on the technical engineering aspects such as structural
systems, mechanical systems, and the properties of materials. Because of this
difference in emphasis, persons with degrees in architecture may have a
preference for work assignments that offer greater opportunities for them to
express their artistic and creative abilities. As a result, they may be more
concerned with planning and design aspects of architecture, and persons with
degrees in architectural engineering may be more engaged in aspects emphasizing
technical engineering considerations.
2. Experience: An
applicant lacking a degree in architecture must have had l year of experience
in an architect's office or in architectural work for each year short of
graduation from a program of study in architecture. In the absence of college
courses, 5 years of such experience is required. This experience must have
demonstrated that the applicant has acquired a thorough knowledge of the
fundamental principles and theories of professional architecture.
HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:
You will be rated on the following Knowledge, Skills, Abilities and Other characteristics (KSAOs) as part of the assessment questionnaire for this position:
