Instrumentation and Control
The Department's Federal Technical Capability Program Policy, issued by the Secretary in December
1998, commits the Department to continuously strive for technical excellence. The Technical
Qualification Program, along with the supporting technical Functional Area Qualification Standards,
complements the personnel processes that support the Department's drive for technical excellence. In
support of this goal, the competency requirements defined in the technical Functional Area Qualification
Standards should be aligned with and integrated into the recruitment and staffing processes for technical
positions. The technical Functional Area Qualification Standards should form, in part, the primary basis
for developing vacancy announcements, qualification requirements, crediting plans, interviewing
questions, and other criteria associated with the recruitment, selection, and internal placement of technical
personnel. Office of Personnel Management minimum qualification standards will be greatly enhanced
by application of appropriate materials from the technical Functional Area Qualification Standards.
The technical Functional Area Qualification Standards are not intended to replace the U.S. Office of
Personnel Management's (OPM) Qualifications Standards nor other Departmental personnel standards,
rules, plans, or processes. The primary purpose of the Technical Qualification Program is to ensure that
employees have the requisite technical competency to support the mission of the Department. The
Technical Qualification Program forms the basis for the development and assignment of DOE personnel
responsible for ensuring the safe operation of defense nuclear facilities.
The Instrumentation and Control Functional Area Qualification Standard establishes common functional
area competency requirements for Department of Energy Instrumentation and Control personnel who
provide assistance, direction, guidance, oversight, or evaluation of contractor technical activities
impacting the safe operation of defense nuclear facilities. The technical Functional Area Qualification
Standard has been developed as a tool to assist DOE Program and Field offices in the development and
implementation of the Technical Qualification Program in their organization. Satisfactory and
documented attainment of the competency requirements contained in this technical Functional Area
Qualification Standard, or similar Standards, ensures that Instrumentation and Control personnel possess
the requisite competence to fulfill their functional area duties and responsibilities. Office/Facility-
Specific Qualification Standards supplement this technical Functional Area Qualification Standard and
establish unique operational competency requirements at the Headquarters or Field element, site, or
facility level.
This technical Functional Area Qualification Standard identifies the technical and associated competency
requirements for Instrumentation and Control personnel. Although there are other competency
requirements associated with the positions held by Instrumentation and Control personnel, this Functional
Area Qualification Standard is limited to identifying the specific technical competencies. The
competency statements define the expected knowledge and/or skill that an individual must meet. Each of
the competency statements is further explained by a listing of supporting knowledge and/or skill
statements. The supporting knowledge and/or skills provide guidance on the level of expectation
and rigor to meet the intent of the competency.
