Roles & Responsibilities

The Action Officer will directly support NNSA Office of Radiological Security (ORS) senior leadership. The position requires a background in executive assistance or other administrative support. The position will involve, but is not limited to, the following:


  • Receive, process, and coordinate office-level responses to multiple requests for information (in the form of executive “taskers”) daily. Prepare and edit documents, briefings, and spreadsheets for consistency/accuracy and consolidate input from multiple stakeholders. This effort varies from day-to-day and includes regular communication (such as daily status updates and other instant messaging) and ad-hoc verbal communication, with any decision(s) being accurately transcribed to email for records purposes.
  • Quickly triage taskers & executive correspondence as they are received and determine if the request pertains to ORS equities or if the office has fulfilled a similar request recently that could be recycled. Otherwise, provide clear direction to the program office’s senior leadership about what is needed, adding additional value beyond the content already listed in the tasking from ORS’s parent office.
  • Clearly communicate the status of all taskers to the customers being directly supported. Ensure all deadlines are met with federal clearance obtained prior to official submissions.
  • Provide support in analyzing and developing processes/procedures for addressing internal business operations in coordination with the government.
  • Maintain situational awareness on the status of within scope government programs for the purposes of management reporting, integrating workflow, and administrative planning.
  • Organize and maintain historical records of program strategic messaging, priorities, and responses to DOE/NNSA requests and those external to DOE/NNSA (i.e. Congressional, international partners, GAO, OPM). This includes maintaining a thorough understanding of historical messaging (especially at the policy/strategic level) to aid as appropriate.
  • Attend, and organize as requested, program meetings to remain informed about program priorities, policies, and staffing. This will occasionally involve preparing meeting materials, recording minutes, reserving meeting spaces, greeting and escorting official visitors, and/or presenting on behalf of senior executives.
  • Scheduling responsibilities as requested.
