1. Contract Administrator
Do defense contracts excite you? If the answer’s yes, you’ll want to see this Defense Department (DoD) opening in Chantilly, Virginia. Joining DoD’s Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), you’ll determine which contracts are eligible for DCMA to acquire. Once DCMA acquires a contract, you’ll decide how it’s progressing and when the contractual end items have been delivered. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll resolve disputes between auditors and contractors to keep public services flowing smoothly. Click here to view this job.
2. Chief Information Officer
Chief information officers (CIOs) are increasingly important at today’s agencies, and the Energy Department (DOE) is no exception. Not only is DOE’s Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in Washington, D.C., it needs a CIO of its own. FERC’s CIO will help acquire and manage its IT resources, making it critical for the agency’s operations. Given FERC oversees the transmission of electricity, oil and natural gas, this is a spot that’s equally appealing to energy and technology buffs. Click here to view this job.
