TUVA is looking for a Policy SME to work in Washington, DC. To join our team of outstanding professionals, apply today!

Job Responsibilities:

  • The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Internal Policy Office (IPO) manages the coordination, review, approval, publication, and promulgation of all FBI policies and forms. To date, the focus of IPO has been the creation of the FBI’s policy and forms processes and the development of a Policy Library (PL), which is the centrally located source of all Bureau policy. This requires a high level of coordination with Federal Bureau of Investigation Headquarters (FBIHQ) division and field office (FO) policy representatives, called division policy officers (DPO) and field policy officers (FPO), respectively. Additionally, IPO maintains and publishes the FBI’s principal operational policy guide, the Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG).

  • The DIOG, originally published on December 16, 2008, requires regular updates and maintenance as FBI policies and federal laws evolve. The primary role of the subject matter expert (SME) of the DIOG and DIOG-related policies will be to assist IPO with this endeavor.

  • The SME will support IPO by continuing to produce substantive and administrative updates to the DIOG.

  • The SME will provide expert advice on proposed operational and administrative policies entered into the IPO workflow, on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Undercover operations, extraterritorial operations, online investigations, sensitive investigative techniques, and counterintelligence.​​​​​​​

  • The SME will use their knowledge of FBI operations to infuse the policy and intent of the DIOG into underlying policies for use of specific methods or within specific divisions.

  • The SME will work with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to propose updates to the Attorney General Guidelines on Extraterritorial Operations (AGG-ET) and frequently meet with DOJ and United States Intelligence Community (USIC) partners on these discussions.

  • The SME will develop policy to address recommendations from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

Minimum Qualifications:

  • The SMEs will be tasked with drafting policy on a wide range of topics pertaining to the DIOG, including, but not limited to, undercover operations, extraterritorial operations, online investigations, sensitive investigative techniques, and counterintelligence. Accordingly, the contractors must:

  • Possess a Top-Secret Clearance with the ability to attain SCI Access.

  • Possess a minimum of 20 years in DOJ and USIC management and legislative oversight.

  • Have extensive knowledge of the DIOG and internal FBI polices.

  • Possess knowledge of the Attorney General guidelines (AGG).

  • Have experience working effectively with DOJ and USIC agencies in relation to information sharing.

  • Be capable of working independently and providing detailed analysis and recommendations to FBI personnel at the senior executive level.

  • Be familiar with the intelligence policies and procedures within the FBI, DOJ, and ODNI.

  • Have experience participating in working groups and providing input on policy-related matters.

  • Have extensive knowledge regarding and experience with FBI investigations (criminal and national security matters).​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  • Each contractor must possess a B.A. or B.S. degree or equivalent experience in a related field. A law degree is preferred, but not required.
