Employment Type:Full Time

Position Description:

Seeking an experienced Sr. Contract Manager to perform the full range of life cycle contract administration duties for contracts in our federal defense agency programs business unit (DEF BU). The senior contracts manager will support a uniquely varied set of contract types; both in a standard government agency setting and in a quasi-federal setting, where the client may not use the FAR in its contracts. These contracts support IT services, software development, and hosting/cloud based delivery as well. The individual will need to be able to shift support to new accounts and contracts as the need arises to accommodate dynamic priorities. Strategic, as well as tactical, proposal support is a significant part of this role.

Overview: Full-cycle contract administration responsibilities, which as a minimum, includes oversight of detailed financial/funding requirements of multi-CLIN contracts that have a combination of contract types and services by CLIN, RFP/RFQ analysis, subsequent proposal preparation review/support, negotiations, post-award contract set-up and administration, and contract closeouts, all in accordance with company policies, legal requirements, and customer/contract specifications.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

The position requires the individual to work closely and develop good working relationships with Contracting Officers externally, and all internal stakeholders by establishing routine, professional communications, both verbally and in writing. Will be required to have collaborative and daily interaction with these individuals, including program staff, legal, and contracts/subcontracts/procurement team members, as we strive to have a very collaborative working environment.

Successful candidate will be responsible for assigned agency(s) contracts and will also be responsible for maintenance of contract data in company database(s), contract files, and the submission of ad-hoc reporting as needed.

Will be responsible for collaborating with proposal teams on proposal efforts for new competitive and sole source procurements for follow-on work or other pursuits as assigned. Will also be responsible for detailed review and collaboration on smaller non-competitive responses, to include ROM estimates and RFI responses, including final submission and correspondence with the government’s designated acquisitions workforce as applicable.

Will be expected to be mature, professional, and have the ability to think independently to resolve problems using proactive concepts, techniques, standards, and apply a general business acumen as it applies to contract management.

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

BA/BS plus minimum 7 years relevant experience. Additional years relevant experience may be substituted for educational requirement.

Must have excellent analytical skills, effective written and oral communication skills, effective negotiation skills and strong interpersonal skills.

Must understand the broader impact of proposed or awarded work and contract terms on the company, be able to identify and resolve complex contracts issues and advise program staff and management of contractual rights and obligations.

Applicant must have a strong working knowledge of contract administration principles and possess working knowledge of U. S. Government procurement regulations (FAR/DFAR/Agency Regs, as applicable).

Ability to directly and professionally interact and negotiate with government acquisitions personnel and teaming partner personnel.

Demonstrated ability to identify issues and problems on assigned contracts and make independent recommendations to direct supervisor(s), program staff, and business unit management.

Direct managerial experience desired.

Advanced Degrees and/or Contract Management related class work or certifications a plus; but not required.

Desired

Preferred Additional Qualifications:

Current/previous experience with Department of Defense is preferred;

Professional Contracts certification or related coursework will be considered a plus;

Current/previous experience working with the full range of Contract types (e.g. Cost-Type, T&M, Fixed Price) to include performance based contracting, and GWAC and GSA Schedule Contracting will be considered a plus.

Some experience with software license agreements a plus.
