    • CCAs will not be considered

    Education and Experience Required:

    • Fourteen (14) years system engineering experience in programs and contracts of similar scope, type and complexity within the Federal Government is required.
    • Bachelor's degree in System Engineering, Computer Science, Information Systems, Engineering Science, Engineering Management or related discipline from an accredited college or university is required. 
    • Five (5) years of additional SE experience may be substituted for a bachelor's degree.

    Must possess the following capabilities: 

    • Provides technical direction for the development, engineering, interfacing, integration, and testing of all components of complex hardware/software systems to include requirements elicitation, analysis and functional allocation, conducting systems requirements reviews, developing concepts of operation and interface standards, developing system architectures, and performing technical/non-technical assessment and management as well as end-to-end flow analysis
    • Develops scenarios (threads) and an Operational Concept that describes the interactions between the system, the user, and the environment, that satisfies operational, support, maintenance, and disposal needs
    • Reviews and/or approves system engineering documentation to ensure that processes and specifications meet system needs and are accurate, comprehensive, and complete
    • Establishes and follows a formal procedure for coordination system integration activities among multiple teams, ensuring complete coverage of all interfaces
    • Captures all interface designs in a common interface control format, and stores interface data in a commonly accessible repository
