    The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) advances U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economic objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system and promoting continued U.S. strategic technology leadership. BIS’s activities include regulating the export of sensitive goods and technologies; enforcing export control, and public safety laws; cooperating with assisting other countries on export control and strategic trade issues; assisting U.S. industry to comply with international arms control agreements; and monitoring the viability of the U.S. defense industrial base.

    This position is located in the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), in the Office of Export Enforcement (OEE), Headquarters, Investigations Division, Washington, DC.

    The mission of the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) Export Enforcement is to protect U.S. national security, homeland security, foreign policy, and economic interests through a law enforcement program focused on: sensitive exports to hostile entities or those that engage in onward proliferation; prohibited foreign boycotts; and related public safety laws. BIS’s Export Enforcement (EE) is an elite law enforcement organization recognized for its expertise, professionalism, integrity, and accomplishments. EE accomplishes its mission through preventative and investigative enforcement activities and then, pursuing appropriate criminal and administrative sanctions against export violators.
    In the post-9/11 world, the export control challenge is to enable legitimate global trade in U.S. goods and technology, while keeping these items out of the hands of weapons proliferators and terrorists. BIS addresses this challenge through assisting legitimate export traders to comply with export control and antiboycott requirements, preventing violations before they occur, and bringing willful export control violators to justice.

    EE works with the Department of Justice to impose criminal sanctions for violations, including incarceration and fines, and with the Office of Chief Counsel for Industry and Security to impose civil fines and denials of export privileges. EE also works closely with other Federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, when conducting investigations or preventative actions. The Office of Export Enforcement (OEE) works to keep the most sensitive goods out the most dangerous hands. OEE conducts its enforcement operations from Headquarters and nine field locations, in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Jose, and Washington, DC. OEE works cooperatively with the exporting community to prevent violations, and conducts investigations to gather evidence to support criminal and administrative sanctions.
