Included are experts and consultants who occupy appointive positions, and individuals in the Postal Service and the Postal Rate Commission. The District of Columbia Government is not part of the Federal civil service. A person is considered to be in the civil service only if occupying a civil service position at the time of application to this vacancy announcement. SES reinstatement eligibles outside the civil service and SESCDP graduates with noncompetitive eligibility may also apply.  Applicants must possess a J.D. degree and be an active member of a bar (any jurisdiction). You must submit a copy of your college transcripts showing completion of the J.D. degree and proof of active bar membership. Applicant qualifications will be assessed using the traditional application method. Under this method, applicants must submit a resume, a separate narrative addressing the ECQs, and a separate narrative addressing the mandatory technical competencies. All applicants must meet the Mandatory Technical Competencies and Executive Core Qualification requirements listed below to be eligible for consideration. Eligibility will be based on a clear demonstration that the applicant's training and experience are of the scope, quality and level of responsibility sufficient to successfully perform the duties and responsibilities of this executive position. You must submit a supplemental statement that separately addresses the Mandatory Technical Competencies (MTCs) listed below and a supplemental statement that separately addresses the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) listed below. Your resume should also corroborate your possession of the MTCs. Your application will not be considered if you fail to submit both of the supplemental statements. Please see the "Required Documents" section below for complete instructions on the content and format of your application package. MANDATORY TECHNICAL COMPETENCIES (MTCs): MTC1 - Describe your executive-level experience addressing complex legal issues relating to audits, investigations, and evaluations of Federal programs and operations, and legal issues relating to criminal, civil, and administrative investigations of Federal programs, employees and contractors. MTC2 - Describe your executive-level experience addressing Federal legal issues relating to procurement, appropriations, litigation procedures, employee relations, ethics, the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Freedom of Information Act, and the Privacy Act. MTC3 - Describe your knowledge and experience working with the legal authorities that govern an Office of Inspector General including, but not limited to, the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended, and describe your executive-level experience working with the Department of Justice, Congress, Office of Management and Budget, other Offices of Inspector General, or other Government agencies. EXECUTIVE CORE QUALIFICATIONS (ECQs): The ECQs were designed to assess executive experience and potential, not technical expertise. They measure whether an individual has the broad executive skills needed to succeed in a variety of SES positions. All applicants must submit a written narrative to address the ECQs. Your narrative must address each ECQ separately and should contain one or two examples per ECQ describing your experiences and accomplishments/results. The narrative should be clear, concise, and emphasize your level of responsibility, scope and complexity of programs managed, program accomplishments, policy initiatives undertaken and the results of your actions. Applicants should not enter "Refer to Resume" to describe your experiences. Applications directing the reviewer to search within the application or to see the resume are considered incomplete and may not receive further consideration. The narrative must not exceed 10 pages. There are five ECQs: ECQ1 - Leading Change - This core qualification involves the ability to bring about strategic change, both within and outside the organization, to meet organizational goals. Inherent to this ECQ is the ability to establish an organizational vision and to implement it in a continuously changing environment. ECQ2 - Leading People - This core qualification involves the ability to lead people toward meeting the organization's vision, mission, and goals. Inherent to this ECQ is the ability to provide an inclusive workplace that fosters the development of others, facilitates cooperation and teamwork, and supports constructive resolution of conflicts. ECQ3 - Results Driven - This core qualification involves the ability to meet organizational goals and customer expectations. Inherent to this ECQ is the ability to make decisions that produce high-quality results by applying technical knowledge, analyzing problems, and calculating risks. ECQ4 - Business Acumen - This core qualification involves the ability to manage human, financial, and information resources strategically. ECQ5 - Building Coalitions - This core qualification involves the ability to build coalitions internally and with other Federal agencies, State and local governments, nonprofit and private sector organizations, foreign governments, or international organizations to achieve common goals. Failure to submit a narrative statement addressing each of the ECQs may cause your application to be deemed incomplete and not be considered. For guidance on how to prepare well-written ECQ narrative statements, please refer to page 9 of the "Guide to SES Qualifications" at: http://www.opm.gov/ses/references/GuidetoSESQuals_2012.pdf.
