I’m Bob Harrington, Director for Joint Operations Services at Compass, Inc. I’m looking for cybersecurity professionals to fill an opportunity to support HQ USSTRATCOM J6. USSTRATCOM J64 requires Assessment and Authorization (A&A) support for IT system hardware, software, and network operations supporting the new USSTRATCOM Command and Control Facility (C2F). The contractor Team for this support will provide the subject matter expertise for the Risk Management Framework (RMF), supporting the Information Security Officer (ISO) in the establishment and maintenance of USSTRATCOM’s vulnerability management program using management systems defined by USSTRATCOM for the tracking of Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M) documented findings. The Team will serve as the primary Cybersecurity Analysts for the USSTRATCOM AO ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all assigned IT Systems and programs under the AO’s purview. The Team will analyze certification evidence and artifacts, conduct risk analysis and prepare recommendations for accreditation decisions. The Team will advise and assist system hardening, and provide analysis and recommendations on optimizing cybersecurity risk mitigation strategies. The Team will assign supplemental controls to address specific threats or vulnerabilities or to satisfy the requirements of public laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, standards, or regulations. The Team will post, edit, and maintain appropriate content on the appropriate division's network websites/portals or designated application/tools in support of all assigned IT Systems and programs under the AO’s purview.
Period of Performance: The contract is planned for award in March 2017 with options extending through March 2021.
Location of Work: Primary location for all positions is Offutt AFB, NE.
If you are interested in this work and can and believe you are qualified, please send me an e-mail response (via civilian e-mail, not Government e-mail) stating your interest and belief that you meet all the requirements for the position. After your initial respond, please start updating your resume to clearly show you meet the requirements for the position of interest—I’ll need your updated resume soonest after you express your interest. Once I’m confident you meet the requirements, I’ll put you in contact with our business office to discuss your pay/benefits requirements and verify your security clearance. I’ll be selecting and ranking the “best candidates” among the interested candidate pool based on: 1) Strength of Qualifications in Meeting the Position(s), and 2) Lowest Salary Requirement. Incumbents will get special priority. We’ll represent your salary requirements into the process, but the lower your salary requirement, the better chance we have of getting you in a position on our Team. In this current Government contracting environment, the technically acceptable lowest price candidates will generally get approved by the Government for the final job hire offers.
