OR Education: One full year of graduate level education in a field directly related to the work of the position. OR Combination of Education and Experience: A combination of education and experience may be used to qualify for this position as long as the computed percentage of the requirements is at least 100%. To compute the percentage of the requirements, divide your total months of experience by 12. Then divide the total number of completed graduate semester hours (or equivalent) by 18. Add the two percentages. Minimum Qualifications GS-08: Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes utilizing engineering software to complete engineering tasks; researching and/or compiling engineering data; and computing quantities of earthwork and/or construction materials.

Minimum Qualifications GS-09: Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes preparing technical specifications for contracts (such as flood navigation, environmental, recreation, military projects and/or various types of buildings, supplies, and service contract work); developing cost estimates for projects in all phases of construction or operations and maintenance. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-08). OR Education: Two full years of graduate level education (i.e., 36 semester hours) in a field directly related to the work of the position. OR Combination of Education and Experience: A combination of education and experience may be used to qualify for this position as long as the computed percentage of the requirements is at least 100%.

This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-09). Minimum Qualifications GS-11: Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes planning and/or preparing technical specifications for contracts (such as flood navigation, environmental, recreation, military projects and/or various types of buildings, supplies, and service contract work); planning and/or developing cost estimates for projects in all phases of construction or operations and maintenance; and providing instruction and/or recommending corrective actions for technical problems associated with specification and/or cost estimating software. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-10). Minimum Qualifications GS-12: One year of specialized experience which includes planning, reviewing, and/or preparing technical specifications for contracts (such as flood navigation, environmental, recreation, military projects and/or various types of buildings, supplies, and service contract work); planning, reviewing, and/or developing cost estimates for projects in all phases of construction or operations and maintenance; and providing technical guidance on the review of engineering documents and/or cost related products to ensure conformance to established standards. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-11). Some federal jobs allow you to substitute your education for the required experience in order to qualify.
