    Responsibilities
    The Coast Guard Office of Auxiliary & Boating Safety’s Recreational Boating Product Assurance Branch (CG-BSX-23) oversees the implementation of the Recreational Boat Testing and Compliance Program, which is the Coast Guard’s primary means of ensuring recreational boat manufacturer compliance with all relevant statutory and regulatory requirements found in 46 USC 43 and 33 CFR Subchapter S. As a General Engineer within CG-BSX-23 the successful candidate(s) will be responsible for developing and utilizing the policies and procedures of the Branch to carry out all aspects of the Recreational Boat Testing and Compliance Program, to include:

    • Developing contract requirements on recreational boat and associated equipment testing and inspection contracts.
    • Reviewing, advising on, and conducting complex analysis and development studies in support of major organization programs, including analysis of novel, unprecedented, or controversial problems.
