GDIT is seeking a Program Manager in support of the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation ITIOSS Contract.

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) protects the retirement income of more than 40 million American workers in nearly 24,000 private-sector defined benefit pension plans. A defined benefit plan provides a specified monthly benefit at retirement, often based on a combination of salary and years of service. PBGC was created by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974 to encourage the continuation and maintenance of private-sector defined benefit pension plans, provide timely and uninterrupted payment of pension benefits, and keep pension insurance premiums at a minimum. PBGC is not funded by general tax revenues. PBGC collects insurance premiums from employers that sponsor insured pension plans, earns money from investments and receives funds from pension plans it takes over. A department within PBGC's Office of Information Technology, the IT Infrastructure Operations Department (ITIOD) provides the mission-critical IT foundation for computing services used and procured by PBGC. PBGC cannot accomplish its mission without automated tools and business software. All other PBGC departments depend on this one for their IT support. PBGC's Common Security Controls under the IT Infrastructure Services General Support Systems (ITISGSS) are also provided by this department. ITIOD is comprised of approximately 40 PBGC FTE and approximately 150 contractors. ITIOD stakeholders include a dedicated PBGC staff of approximately 2,250 government and contracted personnel, 26,000 pension plan sponsors who pay premiums into the PGBC and over 1.5 million trusteed participants who, combined, receive over $5 billion dollars in benefits payments.
