Supervisory General Engineer (Public Flyer Notice)
This is a Public Advertisement for positions being filled under the Human Resources Management Letter (HRML) NO. 05-18-11 Direct Hire Authority (DHA) for Various Scientific, Technical, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Positions, as well as Specific Cybersecurity and Related Positions. This announcement will closed once the position is filled. To qualify for this position, applicants must meet all requirements by the closing date of this announcement. Basic Requirements: Education: Possess a bachelor's degree or higher in professional engineering from an accredited college or university. To be acceptable, the curriculum must: 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- 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) statistics,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. (COPY OF TRANSCRIPT MUST BE SUBMITTED) -OR- 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. (COPY OF TRANSCRIPT MUST BE SUBMITTED) The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following: Professional registration -- Current registration as a professional engineer by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. Absent other means of qualifying under this standard,those applicants who achieved such registration by means other than written test (e.g., State grandfather or eminence provisions) are eligible only for positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of their registration. For example, an applicant who attains registration through a State Board's eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions. Written Test -- Evidence of having successfully passed the Engineer-in-Training (EIT) examination, or the written test required for professional registration, which is administered by the Boards of Engineering Examiners in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico. 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. 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 at least 1 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 meeting the basic requirements, you must also meet the specialized experience requirement described below. SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE: GS-14: One year of specialized experience (equivalent to the GS-13 grade level in the federal service); experience that equipped the applicant with the particular knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA's) and other characteristics to perform successfully the duties of the position, and that is typically in or related to the work of the position to be filled, in the normal line of progression for the occupation in the organization. Specialized experience includes: developing and managing design and construction projects with a variety of complex layouts, utilities and communication systems unique to healthcare facilities, and performing management of a comprehensive acquisition and contracting program You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency in the following areas: Leadership Project Management Safety Engineering There is no educational substitution for the GS-14 level. Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religions; spiritual; community; student; social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Physical Requirements: The work places no special physical demands on the employee. The work includes some walking, standing, sitting, bending, climbing, crawling or reaching to inspect buildings at various stages of construction. The work involves the normal day to day activities found in any construction project, i.e., open excavations, form work, structural steel, etc.
