This position is an integral part of a restricted customer's department-level front office - directly supporting the Chief of Staff in two primary areas of responsibility: data policy and compliance (50%), and organizational governance (50%).  The department plans and implements top-tier technical collection operations involving unique application of advanced technologies, methodologies, and partnerships, and is resourced to sustain a portfolio of operations going forward.

Responsibilities include Front Office / Chief of Staff daily cadence involving issues that stem from:

  • data policy implementation and compliance-based reporting and oversight;
  • internally-focused department-level governance involving collaborative, multi-player decision-making, communications and follow-up; sustain institutional memory and context for future decisions.


Minimum of 12 years with BS/BA; Minimum of 10 years with MS/MA; Minimum of 7 years with Ph.D.


Additional years of experience may be substituted in lieu of degree.


TS/SCI with Poly required.


Familiarity with modern telecommunications is a plus, as is familiarity with data compliance oversight and management relating to data-rich technical collection capabilities.


Familiarity with organizational governance models that enable sound, collaborative decisions is also a plus as the unit pursues an aggressive set of operational challenges that involve program-level milestones and performance objectives.


Prior experience in establishing an effective governance model for a department-level organization is desired.
