As an Industrial Contract Property Management Specialist for the CIA, you will have full responsibility for the oversight, monitoring and administration of government property located at a diverse array of contractor facilities supporting acquisitions issued by the CIA. Industrial Contract Property Management Specialists oversee and manage the entire life cycle process for government-owned property, both government furnished property and contractor acquired property, in the possession of contractors. The types of property could include special tooling and test equipment, consumable material which may be considered sensitive, or critical property—each requiring different methods of management and control.

You will also provide advice and assistance to the Contracting Officer on property-related matters during acquisition planning, contract administration and settlement of contracts with government-owned property. You will work closely with the Contracting Officer and Contracting Officer's Technical Representative on disposition of government property throughout the contract period of performance and at contract completion. Additionally, you will conduct analysis/audits of contractors ensuring compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and contract requirements for proper management and administration of government property from the point of acquisition to disposition.

The majority of your career will be based in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, though some domestic travel to contractor facilities is required (estimated at four to six weeks per year) to conduct on-site functions and attend required contractor meetings.

This position requires a 5-year Contract Term Agreement. Learn more about the Contract Term Agreement.
