Team - Good morning.  FYSA. Below are the first announcements related to the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) direct hire authority.  The announcements are for intermittent, term positions with a not-to-exceed date of 2 years with a possible 2-year extension.  The announcements opened Friday, April 6, 2018, and will close Friday, July 27, 2018 (unless otherwise extended).  The announcements are going public-wide with mass allowable distribution so please encourage those on your teams to apply as soon as possible. 

Vacancy closing date (which will serve as an additional cut-off):  July 27, 2018


UPDATE: This is Jay Brosnan, Deputy Team Commander for FL1 DMAT. It has been brought to my attention that folks that have applied for positions with HHS/NDMS/FL1 DMAT have been receiving letters from Human Resourses (OPM) stating that the applicant is not qualified. Please go back to the “complete job descriptions” and modify your resumé to include the key words of the posted job descriptions. Understand OPM uses a “robot” to scan your resumé for specific key words. PLEASE DO NOT be discouraged, please adjust your resumé and resubmit. We really want and need you on our team.
