2. Background: Management has requested that Job # EI01079, Employment Assistance Manager, GS-101-11, be canceled and the incumbent, Louis Shaw, be reassigned to new job description, Mobilization and Deployment Specialist, GS-0301-11. This job description was based on Job #EW00034, Mobilization and Deployment Specialist, GS-0301-11 with no major modifications.

3. Series and Title Determination: The duties of this position are assigned to the GS-0301 Miscellaneous, Administration and Program series, which covers performance of two-grade interval work for which no other series is appropriate. Although the incumbent must know and apply knowledge of work in the GS-0186 and -0187 series, and to a lesser extent the GS-0185 series, the position does not meet the GS-0101 series coverage, since that series ??includes positions the duties of which are to advise on, administer, supervise or perform research or other professional and scientific work in one or any combination of the social sciences when such work is not classifiable in other series of this occupational group.? While mobilization and deployment planning work is two-grade interval in nature, and although the incumbent must possess a thorough knowledge of ACS mission and functions, the duties performed do not meet the GS-0101 series coverage in that they do not involve performing ??other professional and scientific work in one or any combination of the social sciences?? Accordingly, the position is assigned to the GS-0301 series with the constructed title ?Mobilization and Deployment Specialist.?

4. Grade Determination: Reference b was used for grade determination, factor levels and points are contained in job description.

5. Final Classification Determination: Mobilization and Deployment Specialist, GS-0301-11.
