    Job Overview
    Summary

    About the Agency

    We are seeking a highly qualified and motivated individual to serve as the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for Real Property Audits and be a proactive member of our team. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the General Services Administration (GSA) is one of the original OIGs established by the Inspector General Act of 1978. The OIGs were created as independent and objective entities within an agency (A) to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration of the agency, and (B) to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in agency programs and operations. The OIGs report to the agency head and Congress through semi-annual and other reports.

    The GSA OIG operates as an autonomous entity within GSA under a presidentially appointed, Senate confirmed Inspector General who supervises a diverse team of over 300 professionals in headquarters' administrative, legal, and operational components and in regional operational offices throughout the country.

    The GSA OIG is dedicated to protecting the public interest by bringing about positive changes in the performance, accountability, and integrity of GSA programs and operations. Oversight is provided through auditing, inspections and evaluations, and investigations of GSA's extensive procurement, real property, and related programs and operations, which primarily support other federal agencies. OIG oversight components report their findings and recommend courses of action to promote efficiency and economy in the GSA’s activities. Last fiscal year, our OIG professionals’ efforts resulted in $243 million in criminal, civil, administrative, and other recoveries; over $1.4 billion in GSA management decisions that agreed with GSA OIG audit recommendations; over 40 successful criminal prosecutions; and numerous suspensions and debarments. Applicants are encouraged to review the work and accomplishments of the GSA OIG on our website, https://www.gsaig.gov/.

    Any offers of employment made pursuant to this announcement will be consistent with all applicable authorities, including Presidential Memoranda, Executive Orders, Interpretive U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) guidance, and Office of Management and Budget plans and policies concerning hiring. These authorities are subject to change.
    Duties

    The Deputy Assistant Inspector General (DAIG-RPA) for Real Property Audits is under the broad direction of the Assistant Inspector General for the Office of Audits.

    DEPUTY DIRECTOR, DIVISION OF THERAPEUTICS AND MEDICAL CONSEQUENCES

    National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)

    The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking exceptional candidates for the position of Deputy Director, Division of Therapeutics and Medical Consequences (DTMC).  Applicants should demonstrate senior-level experience, a commitment to excellence, and the energy, enthusiasm, and innovative thinking necessary to lead a dynamic and diverse organization.  NIDA's mission is to lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction. This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic support for research across a broad range of disciplines related to addiction. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination of research results to improve practice and inform policy related to drug abuse and addiction.  DTMC’s primary goal is to facilitate the development of therapies to treat substance use disorders (SUDs).  The Division also investigates the medical consequences of drug abuse, including HIV/AIDS; the Division’s work is highly impactful.  For example, DTMC designed and funded the clinical studies that led to the development of Nasal Narcan®, the first FDA-approved intranasal medication to treat opiate overdose. 

    The position offers a unique and exciting opportunity for scientific and managerial leadership in a highly dynamic and diverse area of health research.  As an Institute expert and the lead scientist on a diverse range of trials related to therapies for SUDs, the incumbent provides strategic vision in implementing and managing the design and execution of grant-funded clinical trials.    As a recognized national leader and expert in the field of drug addiction, the incumbent organizes research meetings, workshops, and symposia for such purposes as program development, assessment of current state of the field, and encourages new lines or areas of research that would be useful to the Institute.  On a national and international level, the Deputy Director, DTMC, represents the Division and liaises with universities, research institutions, pharmaceutical companies, and other government agencies to explain the purpose and objectives of DTMC’s programs and to stimulate the interest of scientists in submitting grant applications in areas of scientific priority for the Division.
