    Peter R. Orszag, head of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) says that Federal civilian agencies should grow their acquisition workforce by at least 5% over the next 5 years. Last year, these agencies awarded and managed an estimated $138 billion in civilian contracts, according to the Federal Acquisition Institute.

    Knowing this, would you like to change your job series from Administrative, Program Analyst, IT, or other job series and move into the Business and Industry Career Series? Would you like new challenges, training, customers, projects, and opportunities for growth? Why not consider analyzing the 1101 and 1102 job series? If you are interested, then it’s time to add contracting, life cycle management and acquisitions into your Federal Career Toolkit. First you will need to study the Qualifications, Education and Specialized Experience in order to build your federal resume or KSAs toward Contracts and Acquisitions work.
