OPMs Individual Occupational Requirements (IOR) for Professional Engineering Positions in conjunction with the Group Qualification Standard for Professional & Scientific Positions.
BASIC REQUIREMENTS: (A) Degree: Professional Engineering. 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 & 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. OR (B) Combination of Education and Experience: College-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following: 1) Professional registration-Current registration as a professional engineer by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. 2) Written Test - Evidence of having successfully passed the Engineer-in-Training (EIT) examination, or the written test required for the professional registration which is administered by the Boards of Engineering Examiners in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico. 3) 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. The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of a professional engineering curriculum as described in paragraph A above. 4) Related Curriculum - Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree in engineering technology or in an appropriate professional field, e.g., physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had a least one year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance. Ordinarily there should be either an established plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering competence, or several years of prior professional engineering-type experience, e.g. in interdisciplinary positions. (The above examples of related curricula are not all-inclusive.)
IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE BASIC REQUIREMENT:
TO QUALIFY AT THE FV-I (FG/GS 13) LEVEL, you must demonstrate in your application you possess 52 weeks of Specialized Experience equivalent to the FV-H (FG/GS 11-12) level in the Federal Service. Specialized Experience is experience that has equipped you with the particular knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform successfully the duties of the position.
SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE INCLUDES: Advanced knowledge of engineering principles, theories, and concepts to accomplish assignments and develop plans and techniques to improve programs and policies. Professional mechanical engineering work interpreting, reviewing, and analyzing mechanical design concepts to produce plans and associated details necessary for competitive bid documents through the use of the Computer Aided Engineering Graphics, (CAEG).
In addition to the minimum qualifications, the following has been determined to be a selective factor for this position. This means possession of this criterion is part of the minimum qualifications and is essential to perform the duties and responsibilities of this position. Applicants who do not possess this criterion are ineligible for further consideration.
Evaluation CriteriaKnowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSA)
- SELECTIVE PLACEMENT FACTOR (SPF): Candidates will be evaluated based on their possession of the specialized experience AND selective factors required. In order to be found eligible, applicants MUST be licensed as a registered professional engineer (P.E.) in the state of Oklahoma. Do you meet the SPF?
1. QUALITY RANKING FACTOR (QRF): The well-qualified candidates will possess experience in mechanical engineering design and experience with green building and sustainable design. Experience ranging from small to multi-million dollar, new or renovated facilities which include administrative, technical and, adult training facilities.
2. Knowledge of mechanical engineering concepts, principals, (HVAC, plumbing, domestic water, controls, fire protection, etc.), green building and sustainable design, and demonstrated experience sufficient to serve as the technical and business manager of designated multi-million dollar projects from the preliminary planning stage to point of occupation.
3. Ability to present clear and concise information consistent with the targeted audience.IMPORTANT:
Ensure that your work experience supports your Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSA), and Other Factors answers. Your answers and associated work experience will be evaluated further to validate whether the answers that you selected are appropriate. Answers may be adjusted by a Human Resource Specialist as appropriate.
EDUCATION: Also See QUALIFICATIONS REQUIRED.
THIS POSITION HAS A POSITIVE EDUCATION REQUIREMENT. You MUST upload or fax a copy of your transcripts on or before the CLOSING DATE TO (405) 954-3003. Failure to provide transcripts by the closing date of the announcement will eliminate you from further consideration.
Schools must be accredited by an accrediting institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Accreditation may be verified at the following website: www.ed.gov
As a part of the Federal-Wide Hiring Reform Initiative (streamlining the hiring process), the FAA is committed to eliminating the use of the Knowledge, Skills and Ability (KSA) narratives from the initial application in the hiring process for all announcements. Therefore, as an applicant for this announcement, you are NOT required to provide a narrative response in the text box listed below each KSA.
In lieu of providing a KSA narrative response in the text box listed below each KSA, and other Factors, in your work history, please include information that provides specific examples of how you meet the response level or answer you chose for each KSA. Your work history examples should be specific and clearly reflect the highest level of ability. Your KSA answers will be evaluated further to validate whether the level that you selected is appropriate based on the work history and experience you provided. Your answers may be adjusted by a Human Resource Specialist as appropriate.
Eligible applicants meeting the minimum qualification requirements and selective factor(s), if applicable, may be further evaluated on the Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSA) and other factors listed in the announcement. Based on this evaluation, applicants will be placed in one of the following categories: score order, category grouping, or priority grouping and referred to the selecting official for consideration.
We are not accepting applications from noncitizens.
HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:
Applicants may be rated on the extent and quality of experience, education, and training relevant to the duties of the position(s). All answers provided in the on-line process must be substantiated.
