Uh, wow. That's a rather detailed job description. Is this a supervisory position? What is the salary?

What if a candidate knows the SKOPE SIGINT toolkit is a poor substitute for actual analytical techniques?

Do they just not mention that around the client?

LOL, you know damn well when a job requirement is that specific what it actually means.


They already have someone in mind (internal) but are required to post the job announcement by law.

It's why you should alway file a protest for a job you applied if you don't get selected when you are qualified. Keeps that kind of thing from becoming the norm.

The descriptions are that specific because they're looking for capability, not potential. They are looking to fill a lot more than just one position. It's partially correct that they are looking internally for fills, but internal to the SOF support community not just from a specific entity or location.

The customer is bolstering up its analytical ranks and looking to lower the number of RFF personnel. They also have multi-layered targeting analyst and a few other positions available.

The problem they are having right now is that the prime has capped the salaries of the subs at a very low rate, causing many of the current analysts to leave and other analysts to not take positions.

The customer wants to lower the number of RFF personnel so they pay a contractor? There is so much wrong with this approach.

Maybe the customer should reread the classified annex to the appropriations bill? And take a look at what is happening to COIC as a preview for how this is going to turn out.

Contractors don't have a probationary period and tenure afterwards. They can be hired and fired at will and it's not a typical interview process.

LOL!

I have yet to see it work out that way.

Then again I work for a governemnt org so the rules may be different, but getting rid of a contractor isn't nearly as easy as you suggest, unless you like lawsuits.

Word.

Better to utilize the GFM process to build permanent capability that RFF / OCO cannot effect.

Last time I checked, this is a job posting not an area to discuss the merits or lack thereof on how the gov does business.

Thank you
