Job Responsibilities

The Program Administration Specialist position is located in Washington, DC at the Department of Transportation in IT Shared Services.  The position works directly in support of the Program Manager under the Program Management Office Task Order and reports directly to the Program Manager.  This position suits an experienced administrator who is expected to self-manage their activities in an autonomous work environment.

The program team is approximately 140 personnel across 15 Task Orders and is composed primarily of the ActioNet team (primary contractor) and Dell (sub-contractor).  The Program Admin supports the staff onsite and is the primary point of contact for interactions and communications with ActioNet Headquarters staff and the Federal staff for employee activities (in-processing, out-processing, etc).  The position also supports the teams in development of contract presentations/deliverables and quality deliverables.

The Program Administration Specialist job profile primarily entails support in managing the staff, contract, and direct support of the Director of Operations and the Program Director.  The Program Administration Specialist is expected to handle different functions ranging from administrative activities (meeting minutes, presentation coordination) and organizing, to working with ActioNet HQ and Federal staff to ensure seamless transitions of personnel.  The Program Administration Specialist is responsible for meeting deadlines required by the contract and Program Director, facilitating both contract-related and ActioNet employee meetings, and demonstrating effective communication skills.  It is unlikely that the program admin will handle only one task at a particular time, therefore the program admin should have the ability to multitask.  Prioritization of tasks and deliverables will be managed by the Program Director.  In addition, the successful program admin performs the following duties:
