    In this position, you will be responsible for the Mission Support Bureau's budgetary and financial functions. Typical assignments include:

    • Developing timely submission of budget formulation documents including Congressional Justifications, Spend Plans, Multi-Year Forecasts, Quarterly Review Reports, and Special-Issue Reports. 
    • Serving as the Subject Matter Expert (SME) on budget execution matters.
    • Coordinating budget estimates and program requirements into financial review and analysis process.
