YOU MUST UPLOAD YOUR RESPONSES TO THE EXECUTIVE CORE QUALIFICATIONS (ECQs) AND MANDATORY TECHNICAL QUALIFICATIONS (MTQs). To meet the minimum qualifications for this position, candidates must possess specialized experience at a senior level which demonstrates the ability to perform the duties described above; including progressively responsible supervisory or managerial experience demonstrating the ability to manage people and resources. Candidates must fully address all Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) and Mandatory Technical Qualifications (MTQs) in order to receive consideration. Your responses must demonstrate possession of these qualifications; typically acquired through education, experience, or training, and reflect progressive development and achievement in managing a comprehensive program and/or organization. Please provide examples that are clear, concise, and emphasize your level of responsibility, the scope and complexity of programs managed, program accomplishments, policy initiatives undertaken, and level of contacts. Do not enter "Refer to Resume" to explain your answer. Applications directing the reviewer to search within the application or to see resume are considered incomplete and will not receive further consideration. All qualified candidates will be evaluated on the relevance of their experience, education, training, self-development, honors, awards, and outside activities. Applicants currently serving under a career Senior Executive Service (SES) appointment; eligible for reinstatement into the SES; or have successfully completed an SES Candidate Development Program (CDP) approved by OPM are not required to address the ECQs; but MUST address all MTQs. Failure by a non-Senior Executive Service member to upload a narrative statement addressing each of the ECQs and MTQs will result in loss of consideration. Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs): A supplemental narrative must be uploaded and attached to your application addressing each ECQ listed below. 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: ECQ 1: LEADING CHANGE: Ability to bring about strategic change, both within and outside the organization, to meet organizational goals and establish an organizational vision and to implement it in a continuously changing environment. ECQ 2: LEADING PEOPLE: Ability to lead people toward meeting the organization's vision, mission, and goals and provide an inclusive workplace that fosters the development of others, facilitates cooperation and teamwork, and supports constructive resolution of conflicts. ECQ 3: RESULTS DRIVEN: Ability to meet organizational goals and customer expectations, and make decisions that produce high-quality results by applying technical knowledge, analyzing problems, and calculating risks. ECQ 4: BUSINESS ACUMEN: Ability to manage human, financial, and information resources strategically. ECQ 5: BUILDING COALITIONS: 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. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is required by law to review the executive core qualifications of each new career appointee to the Senior Executive Service (SES) prior to appointment. Failure to submit a narrative statement addressing each of the ECQs will cause your application to be deemed incomplete and not be considered. Additional information on the ECQs is available at http://www.opm.gov/ses/recruitment/ecq.asp. Example ECQ statements are available at http://www.opm.gov/ses/references/GuidetoSESQuals_2012.pdf. Mandatory Technical Qualifications (MTQs): A supplemental narrative must be uploaded and attached to your application addressing each MTQ listed below. No more than one (1) page per MTQ is allowed; additional informational information will not be considered. MTQs must provide specific examples that address relevant experience and accomplishments. Applicants must reflect superior technical qualifications demonstrated through leadership and management in the following MTQs: MTQ 1: Knowledge of nuclear engineering such as reactor materials, metallurgy, nuclear physics, reactor theory, heat transfer, hydraulics and mechanical design as applied to naval nuclear propulsion. In addition, deep technical knowledge in several engineering fields, in addition to nuclear, such as mechanical, electrical, and chemical which will enable the incumbent to make substantive decisions concerning nuclear reactor and propulsion systems, equipment and related facilities. MTQ 2: Knowledge of nuclear safety regulations, practices, and procedures to ensure that health and safety features and precautions are considered as an integral part of equipment and facility design, operations, and decommissioning and dismantlement. Program and project management experience in executing large nuclear-related hundred-million-dollar major facility construction projects through contractor and Federal personnel. MTQ 3: Knowledge and experience interfacing with senior leadership within and outside Government, including representing the organization to senior leadership and professional Congressional staff, as well as interfacing with other Government and industry leadership, and senior advisory panels. Must have the demonstrated ability to initiate, guide, coordinate, and review all technical and budgetary work connected with the design, development, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning and dismantlement of nuclear facilities. These activities involve highly complex technical and budgetary issues lacking precedent or a base of experience upon which to make judgments and decisions. Failure to submit a narrative statement addressing each of the MTQs will cause your application to be deemed incomplete and not be considered.
