Overview/ Job Responsibilities


The United States Coast Guard (USCG) Aviation Logistics Center (ALC), as an Engineering and Logistics Directorate member organization under the Deputy Commandant for Mission Support, requires program management support to implement the USCG’s Contracting and Procurement (C&P) Transformation.


The USCG C&P community includes almost 1,000 civilian and military professionals and executes an average annual spend of $4 billion through approximately 26,000 procurement actions and 300,000 micro-purchases. These transactions help deliver and sustain assets, systems, services, and capabilities that power a world-class Coast Guard organization.


The C&P Transformation presents a tremendous opportunity to innovate, advance/leverage partnerships with industry, revisit policies and processes to maximize the capabilities of USCG’s new financial management system, improve C&P customer service, and identify new ways to organize, invest in, and retain a highly skilled C&P workforce while attracting the best talent from other agencies, private organizations, and higher-level learning institutions.



Working under the oversight of the Director and Executive Steering Committee, C&P Transformation, the Contracting & Procurement SME will coordinate and execute C&P initiatives that improve and modernize governance and functional alignment, process and policy, data readiness and workforce development and optimization within each of the six (6) Chief of Contracting (COCO) Office areas of responsibility.
