About the Agency
This position is also being posted under Merit Promotion via Job Announcement Number FINCN/14-181472EBB.
This position is for a Senior Regulatory Program Manager in the Office of Regulatory Policy (ORP) of the Policy Division of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. The position involves responsibility for conducting program operations that directly impact the effort to combat terrorism, money laundering and other financial crimes.
The Policy Division is responsible for designing the regulatory and compliance framework that protects the U.S. financial system from money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit finance. In developing policy solutions, the Policy Division considers the needs and equities of all FinCEN stakeholders, including law enforcement, regulators, foreign financial intelligence units, industry, and the public. The Office of Regulatory Policy conceives, develops, and drafts the BSA rules, clarifying guidance, and regulatory rulings that protect our financial system. The office is responsible for staying abreast of all sectors of the financial industry, changes in their products and services, and the development of new payment methods, to assess vulnerabilities and adapt the BSA regulatory framework, as needed.
The Senior Regulatory Program Manager performs a range of extremely complex work in developing and managing FinCEN’s program to carry out the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) mandated requirement to measure the impact of FinCEN’s rulemaking activities. The work also involves Congressionally-mandated impact analyses requirements. FinCEN’s rulemaking authority covers a diversity of 26 regulated industries which include, but are not limited to: insured banks, credit unions, broker dealers, mutual funds, investment companies, currency exchanges, insurance companies and pawnbrokers. A primary purpose of many of the rules is to provide the law enforcement and regulatory communities, as well as others in government, with information useful in their efforts to combat financial crime and help ensure a financial system that is resilient to illicit actors.
