Subject: Revised Qualification Standard for GS-1102 Contract Specialist Series
A revised qualification standard (copy attached) is in effect for civilian agency contract specialist positions as of January 1, 2000. This standard establishes education and experience requirements that must be met to qualify for GS-1102 positions, unless those requirements are waived as provided by the standard. To assist agencies in applying the standard, OFPP and OPM assembled the attached set of questions and answers for distribution to contracting and human resource officials. Please ensure your contracting officials are familiar with the revised standard and encourage them to work closely with their human resource specialists to implement the requirements.
OPM has posted the revised standard on its website and will soon post the questions and answers. Issues that arise in implementing the standard should be addressed to the human resources specialists in your agency, who will be able to seek the assistance and advice of OPM, as necessary. To the extent that further assistance and advice is needed, please contact the OFPP project officer, Mr. Tony Baumann, at (202) 395-7188 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
