The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) is working on many projects supporting the installation of equipment to modernize and sustain the DISN. The Implementation Project Engineer writer will analyze all GFI related to a particular implementation requirement or activity at the designated implementation site and develop implementation engineering solutions to support the project. This GFI includes, but is not limited to System Engineering Documents (SEDs), Site Planning and Design (SP&D), Circuit Planning & Design (CP&D), MSS, TSOs, Major Bill of Material (MBOM), Incidental Bill of Materials (IBOM), configuration standards, wavelength plans, and Site Build Lists (SBLs). Examples of Implementation Projects could include, but are not limited to, MILCONs, Relocations, Circuit Transitions, Timing & Sync Modernization, or Sustainment efforts.

Implementation Project Engineer roles and responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Meet with DISA and other stakeholders to understand project priorities and report on status
  • Develop detailed network engineering solutions to meet project requirements and constraints
  • Identify, resolve, and provide options to resolve and/or escalate implementation activity issues to leadership that could affect overall project schedule
  • Be available, via phone or email, to respond and answer questions from Project Managers, Logistics, Engineers and IE leadership on ongoing implementation activities

  • Update MSS with required information as appropriate
  • Maintain current status of project engineering activities
  • Provide technical documentation and other administrative support for implementation activities
  • Site Survey Support Activities – Includes participation in site surveys to produce a distinct work package (for implementation actions) which outlines the specific tasks required, provides all the necessary engineering and supporting documentation (floor space diagrams, rack/equipment diagrams, network diagrams, connectivity tables, etc.), and provides all of the installation-specific equipment and materials to enable successful execution by field technicians. Work packages include the required Bill of Materials (BOM) to support implementation activities. 
  • Site Preparation Activities - Includes the installation of equipment racks, the installation of power to racks, as necessary, and the installation of cable ladder racks and patch panels.
  • Hardware/software installation and/or removal - Includes the physical installation of the equipment into a rack or cabinet, the installation of any necessary component devices, the installation of all required power cabling, and the installation of all required network and interface cables to facilitate required interconnectivity. 
  • Site wiring implementation, inspection/testing, and removal.
  • Generation of completion reports to include as-installed documentation (Red Line drawings).     
  • Circuit end-to-end activation coordination and cutover management for transition actions – Includes the installation of new circuits, the relocation/rehoming of existing circuits, and the decommissioning of circuits that are no longer needed.  All necessary network device configuration changes, the installation of any network cabling, and the installation of any distribution panel jumpers required to facilitate the successful activation of new circuits and the rehoming of existing circuits.
  • Card installations and replacement.
  • Hardware configuration upgrades - Includes the installation of any necessary component devices, the installation of all required power cabling, and the installation of all required network and interface cables to facilitate the required interconnectivity.  Activation actions include all equipment configurations and testing required to facilitate the acceptance of the devices into the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) by Defense Information Systems Agency.
  • Site implementation testing and checkout.

REQUIRED Qualifications:

  • Active Interim DoD Secret clearance. Candidates without a clearance may be considered contingent upon their ability to complete the clearance process.
  • Bachelor of Science Degree or equivalent experience in lieu of degree
  • 5 years hands-on experience in the design and development of voice, video, radio frequency, and/or data communications networks
