Company name : Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Location : Richland, WA 99354
Position : Project Manager 1

Description :

The National Security Directorate Program Development Office (NSD PDO) is responsible for more than half of the laboratory’s business as measured financially. NSD partners with our federal sponsors to solve difficult science and technology problems. Our core mission is helping sponsors have mission impact and supporting our sponsors as they execute their important national security missions. The NSD PDO is focused on developing strategic programs that are innovative, impactful, and optimized to advance the interests of our mission stakeholders. The NSD sponsors fund PNNL is many ways, but primarily via direct funding from DOE and two other mechanisms that support our growing work-for-others portfolio. This ability to track possible sales, manage recurring sales, and provide oversight to our overhead resources used to develop new business is critical for the PDO to be able to manage the business across hundreds of sponsors, thousands of projects, and seven-hundred million plus annual volume. The NSD PDO is seeking a Project Manager who be responsible for managing all aspects of the sales, proposed sales, and allocation and oversight of internal funds used to engage our external stakeholders and partners.

PNNL is looking for a Project Manager to manage all financial activities across the NSD Program Development Office (PDO). This includes the current sales, future/projected sales (Opportunity Pipeline Tracker 2.0), tracking and management of sales ceilings, NSD’s Program Development and Management (PDM) funding. This PM will partner with the PDO Director and work with all five of the Sectors to update and develop project controls capabilities (e.g., planning, scheduling, control, reporting, and performance measurement activities) to support all financial aspects of the PDO. This PM will partner with the NSD Business Office to refine current processes, but more importantly to develop and implement new processes and reporting mechanisms that will facilitate more accurate and timely reporting.

This PM will provide training, coaching, and/or mentoring on all aspects of the NSD PDO finances to the Sectors, Sub-sectors, Relationship Managers, and other Project Managers. This will include partnering with the PDO Director to facilitate a better understanding of the PDO business processes. This PM will refine and develop novel approaches to managing NSD complex sponsor-funding methods. A significant portion of NSD’s sponsor funding comes from Strategic Partnership Projects (SPP) and Strategic Intelligence Partnership Projects (SIPP). The complexity of tracking, managing, and predicting future sales is complicated and only understood by a few. The objective will be to refine the processes and then provide transparency so that the process and rationale if better understood by everyone involved. Our desire is to provide resources and tools to help the Sector teams better manage their respective Sectors. This PM will also oversee the PDO responses to the routine periodic budget review and projection cycles (1T, 2T, etc) and will develop processes, tools, and techniques to support the reporting requirements. This includes DOE requirement for projecting future sales and managing sales ceilings.

This PM will continue to stay current with emerging project controls technology trends and philosophy and applies that knowledge to new systems, long-term strategic guidance for the PDO and for NSD. One example is our desire to better leverage the Opportunity Pipeline Tracker 2.0 to support staff projections and projected capability growth needs. This will be a complicated, but worthwhile effort as it will more closely couple sales to current and future staffing needs.

This PM will support several key internal NSD initiatives to better assess and manage backlog, support business volume and full-time equivalent (FTE) planning, and support development of a quantitative tool to prioritize and manage current and future NSD work to name a few.
