The Office of Investment Security, in the International Affairs office of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, fulfills Treasury’s statutory responsibilities as chair of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which has the authority to review the national security effects of foreign acquisitions of U.S. businesses. The office leads and coordinates the review by sixteen Executive Branch departments and White House offices of each transaction notified to CFIUS. If a transaction presents national security concerns, CFIUS has the authority to have the parties take certain steps to mitigate the national security risk, or if the risk cannot be mitigated, recommend to the President that he block the transaction. The office also plays a lead role in maintaining U.S. openness to foreign investment, which provides the policy context in which CFIUS operates, and engaging other countries to help ensure an open investment policy towards U.S. investors.
The following are the duties of this position at the GS-15. If you are selected at a lower grade level, you will have the opportunity to learn to perform all these duties, and will receive training to help you grow in this position.
- Assist the Director in all aspects of managing CFIUS cases, including working closely with Investment Security staff, Treasury legal counsel and other Treasury program offices, other agencies, and parties to transactions, to ensure timely progression of cases;
- Review and edit written work product of case officers and, in some cases, draft original work product. This may include extensive involvement in drafting or overseeing the preparation of memoranda to senior Treasury officials, and possibly the President, presenting the issues raised by particular transactions notified to CFIUS, and recommending courses of action;
- Play a key role in Treasury’s Open Investment Initiative to communicate the U.S. open investment policy and information about the CFIUS process through various channels to foreign governments and investors and other relevant foreign and domestic stakeholders;
- Establish and implement strategies to ensure foreign inward investment policies are consistent with international norms, including through coordination with other offices in the International Affairs division of Treasury;
- Engage with other agencies and provide advice to Treasury senior officials concerning other U.S. Government legislative or regulatory initiatives that would affect foreign investment in the United States.
