Preferred Qualifications:

2-year college degree from an accredited university or a minimum of 24 college credit hours in business preferred. Must be accepted into NIB CMS training and complete designated Defense Acquisition University coursework.

Special Instructions: 

This has been designated a sensitive position by the federal government as such, all contractor personnel performing work must have a favorably adjudicated background investigation to occupy an Automated Data Processing/Information Technology Level II (ADP/IT-II) position prior to commencing work and must maintain the level of security required for the life of the contract. Assignment to an ADP/IT-II position requires favorable adjudication as stated in Department of Defense Instruction 5200.2R and in accordance with the Revised Federal Investigative Standards.

A fingerprint-based National Agency Check and Law and Credit (NACLC)(ADP/IT-II) investigation will be required of the finalist candidate. Employment is contingent upon favorable adjudication of this investigation. This process can take up to 4 months or longer until investigation is complete.

This role is defined as “direct labor”. Federal law requires VIB to fill at least 75% of its direct labor roles with qualified candidates who are blind. If you are qualified and meet the definition of blindness below, please apply.

Blindness is defined as “a central visual acuity that does not exceed 20/200 in the better eye with corrective lenses or visual acuity if better than 20/200 is accompanied by a limit to the field of vision in the better eye to such a degree that its widest diameter subtends an angle no greater than 20 degrees. If you are qualified and meet this medical requirement, you will receive preference for this job and compete against other qualified applicants who meet this definition. If no application from a qualified person who is blind is received, this job may be filled by a qualified person who is not blind. If selected for this job based on this preference, you will receive a conditional offer of employment until medical documentation is received validating your vision impairment.
