    All positions are covered under the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) and require additional education, training and experience. If you possess DAWIA Certification, please indicate your Certification Level and Career Field information in your resume.

    Applicants not certified may still apply and be selected for DAWIA positions, but must achieve certification within 24 months of appointment. Certification requirements may be viewed at

    Some DAWIA positions may be designated as Critical Acquisition Positions (CAPs). In addition to DAWIA certification requirements, individuals selected for CAPS must also be a member of the Acquisition Corps at the time of selection and sign a three-year tenure agreement prior to assuming the position. If you are an Acquisition Corps member, please indicate your membership in your resume. Acquisition Corps requirements may be viewed at

    Warrant authority above the small purchase threshold may be required.

    The selection of an annuitant is subject to the Department of Defense and Department of the Navy policy on the employment of annuitants. Policy information may be found at


    Eligible applicants will be evaluated based on a comparison of the position requirements against the quality and extent of the experience or related education as reflected in their resume. Candidates are encouraged to ensure work experiences clearly show possession of knowledge of the subject matter pertinent to the position, the technical skills to successfully perform the duties of the position, and the ability to communicate both orally and in writing.

    In addition to meeting minimum qualification requirements, the Expedited Hiring Authority for Acquisition Positions requires a candidate to be evaluated as Highly Qualified for the position. Applicants will be evaluated as highly qualified based on an assessment of candidates’ experience and competencies against a Quality Ranking Factor derived through a job analysis of the vacant position’s duties.

    Benefits and Other Info


    The Department of the Navy offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes, in part, paid vacation, sick leave, holidays and a 401K-type retirement plan. Click here for additional details.


    Vacancies filled from announcements covering multiple grade levels may be filled at any grade level listed.

    Military Spouse Preference (MSP): If you are the spouse of an active duty military member, then you may be eligible for MSP.

    To be eligible you: (1) must have been married to your military sponsor prior to reporting to the new duty assignment; and, (2) must have accompanied your military sponsor on a Permanent Change in Station (PCS) move; and, (3) the position for which you are applying must be within the commuting area of your military sponsor’s new permanent duty station.

    You must request MSP in your application by: (1) marking Yes to the question, ‘Are you the spouse of a relocating military member or DoD civilian?’ located on the Eligibility page of My Resume; and, (2) providing your military sponsor’s new duty location and reporting date in the Other Information section of the Other Work Related History page of My Resume. At the time of appointment, you must submit a copy of your military sponsor’s PCS orders.

    MSP applies if you are ranked among the ‘best qualified’ and the candidate list established from this announcement is used to fill the vacancy. MSP does not apply, however, when preference would violate statutes or regulations on veteran’s preference or nepotism.

    I recommend that if you are interested in this position that you apply through USA Jobs for these positions. We are trying to close out CHART and if you already have an account on USAJobs there is no point in going through the whole dance of creating a resume on an out of date system that is about to be closed.
