Interested candidates should contact Lauren Antelo (email@example.com) by April 17, 2017 with any questions.
The Office of Human Services Policy (HSP) within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is recruiting an individual through the Intergovernmental Personnel Act, or IPA, for a period of 12 months to provide expert policy analysis, program expertise and research support for HSP work that focuses on the intersection of human services and workforce programming. The individual will bring a high degree of knowledge of program trends, research and evidence-based practices related to federal employment and training programs for low-income and vulnerable populations. Direct experience managing and/or implementing federal and state workforce programming to support economic independence is highly desired.
The IPA will plan, direct and conduct research, policy analysis, and program support at the intersection of workforce and human services in coordination with HSP staff. The individual will inform the coordination of federal policy initiatives and work groups, advise on program improvement options, regulations or policy development, and develop briefs, issue papers, and other materials that identify issues and provide support for federal program administrators and policymakers. The IPA’s expertise will be used to pursue a variety of policy research questions, especially those that arise quickly based on the interests of HHS leadership.
The IPA will work closely with the HSP’s Economic Support for Families Division Director and Team Lead. The IPA will spend some or all of their time working on-site at HHS headquarters in Washington, DC.
