Passion for public service and our work toward a more effective government
People who promote a culture of learning, leadership, collaboration, inclusion and respect
Promise to be trustworthy, nonpartisan and fiscally responsible
Persistence to drive change, take strategic risks and deliver results

This is a unique opportunity for a federal acquisition expert. Instead of writing RFPs, RFQs, and RFIs, you will have the chance to work on a team drafting responses. This change in perspective will strengthen your skill set and make you an overall better writer and reviewer. You will act as the Partnership’s in-house expert in federal acquisition. This positioning will provide you with coaching and training opportunities not always available in current federal procurement positions. The Partnership will also draw upon your expertise and make you a key member of our team that manages our Leadership Excellence in Acquisition (LEAP) Program. Working on LEAP will provide you with exposure to program management and curriculum development. You will have the opportunity to write content, directly support our participants, and network with other procurement professionals across government.
