OCT Consulting LLC is a boutique management and strategy consulting company that provides support to Federal Government clients.

Responsibilities and Duties

OCT Consulting has grown significantly within the last 3 years and continues to grow. We are looking to bring onboard an intelligent, intellectually curious, organized, diligent, and detail-oriented Management Consulting Analyst or Associate to support a government client’s Front Office strategy, business processes, and program management activities for the procurement line of business. Your first, longer-term project will involve developing the business case, strategy, processes, and procedures for an investment/acquisition review board that is new to the given Federal government agency. This review board will evaluate very large government procurements (e.g., $500M+) to ensure optimal program management best practices. Once the infrastructure for the new governance body is created, you will then help to pilot, perfect, and administer the associated processes and procedures.

Responsibilities and duties include:
  • Building and refining the business case (e.g., problem statement, overarching goals, high-level strategy), processes, and procedures related to the new governance body
  • Developing and refining key project management documents (e.g., the Project Management Plan, the Stakeholder Register, the Communications Plan) related to setting up the new governance process/body

  • Draft, finalize, and distribute meeting minutes
  • As requested, conduct self-directed research and analysis, produce reports and presentations, and complete other work, as assigned
  • Perform other administrative and management (e.g., conducting stakeholder briefings and feedback sessions) duties as assigned
  • Note that this is an excellent opportunity to work with a small team of management consultants working closely with high-level government executives to build a new governance process for an agency
  • There will be ample opportunity to learn new skills (e.g., consulting frameworks, story-lining in PPT, process improvement, project planning, facilitation, etc.) and grow in your role to take on more responsibility

Qualifications and Skills

  • Excellent communication skills, and the ability to work collaboratively in support of senior government stakeholders
  • Proficiency in Microsoft suite of programs, as well as Google tools to manage Shared files
  • Ability to manage competing priorities and multiple taskings, and work in a fast-paced working environment
  • Openness to feedback and continuous self-improvement; self-awareness to understand the areas where you excel and those which will require further development
  • Highly intellectually curious and resourceful when approaching problems and determining solutions
  • Top-notch organizational skills
  • Willingness to perform a broad range of tasks that include everything from high-level strategy creation to administrative duties
  • Experience with staff work within the Federal government space
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and flexibility in supporting a diverse set of projects
