The Real Property Services Field Office (RSFO) is located in the National Business Park located just outside of Ft. George G. Meade, MD.

There are numerous amenities, including local eating establishments, within driving distance.

The RSFO is approximately 20 miles from downtown Baltimore and 30 miles from Washington, DC.

There is no public transportation to the National Business Park.

Free parking garages are available in the National Business Park.

About the Position: You will serve as a Real Property Services Field Office (RSFO) consultant and expert advisor in estimating electrical costs and project design reviews, including biddability, constructability, operability, environmental and sustainability (BCOES) and technical reviews, and resolving novel, extremely technical state-of-the-art, unusual and controversial electrical engineering matters.

Yuo will develop innovative approaches to highly complex, one-of-a-kind quality assurances matters, and settles conflicts of highly complex construction programs.

You will provide costs and technical subject matter via automated cost estimate systems support to RSFO projects involving multiple, multi-million dollar construction and renovation projects, and to millions of dollars' worth of new buildings in individual need of electrical utilities stations and hook-ups.

Your projects involve design and construction of communications and electronic evaluation for mission critical facilities, state-of-the-art energy monitoring and control systems for Army Installations, uninterruptible power supply and intrusion detection systems, tempest or RF shielding systems, highly specialized communications facilities, protective design projects, complex rehabilitation projects, and high altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) protected facilities.

Who May Apply: Only applicants who meet one of the employment authority categories below are eligible to apply for this job.

You will be asked to identify which category or categories you meet, and to provide documents which prove you meet the category or categories you selected.

Basic Requirement for Electrical Engineer: A. Degree: Bachelor's degree (or higher degree) in engineering.

To be acceptable, the program must: (1) lead to a bachelor's degree (or higher degree) in a school of engineering with at least one program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET); OR (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.

OR B. Combination of Education and Experience: College-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying engineering, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering.

The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following: 1. Professional registration or licensure - Current registration as an Engineer Intern (EI), Engineer in Training (EIT), or licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico.

Absent other means of qualifying under this standard, those applicants who achieved such registration by means other than written test (e.g., State grandfather or eminence provisions) are eligible only for positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of their registration.

For example, an applicant who attains registration through a State Board's eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions.

2. Written Test - Evidence of having successfully passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination, or any other written test required for professional registration, by an engineering licensure board in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico.

3. Specified academic courses - Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and that included the courses specified in A above.

The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of an engineering program.

4. Related curriculum - Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree in an appropriate scientific field, e.g., engineering technology, physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance.

Ordinarily there should be either an established plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering competence, or several years of prior professional engineering-type experience, e.g., in interdisciplinary positions.

In addition to meeting the basic requirement above, to qualify for this position you must also meet the qualification requirements listed below: SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT: One year of specialized experience which includes: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-12 level in the Federal Service which includes: (1) Providing technical guidance for electrical engineering related issues for large design and construction projects; (2) Creating independent cost estimates for complex electrical systems; AND (3) Performing quality assurance reviews of documents to verify design submissions meet professional standards and methodologies related to electrical engineering.

This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-12).

Some federal jobs allow you to substitute your education for the required specialized experience in order to qualify.

For this job, you must meet the basic requirement and specialized experience--no substitution of education for experience is permitted.

You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency in the following areas: DesignElectrical EngineeringInfluencing/NegotiatingTechnical Competence Time in Grade Requirement: Applicants who have held a General Schedule (GS) position within the last 52 weeks must have 52 weeks of Federal service at the next lower grade or equivalent (GS-12).
