To qualify, applicants must have one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the next lower grade (GS-7) in the normal line of progression for the occupation in the organization. Specialized experience is defined as work that involves (1) Assisting in the development of internal operating programs in support of the mission and objectives of the organization; (2) Assisting in the analysis and estimating of annual funding needs such as staffing, equipment, supplies and travel for one or more budget years; (3) Reviewing, editing and consolidating annual and multi-year budget estimates for multiple programs into a single budget request; AND (4) Utilizing automated programs to enter budgetary information on a wide variety of forms, schedules and reports for monitoring and tracking purposes.
Applicants may substitute education for the experience required to qualify at the GS-9 level:
You must have have a Master's or equivalent graduate degree or 2 full years of progressively higher level graduate education leading to such a degree or LL.B. or J.D., if related.
Applicants can combine education and specialized experience to qualify for the position. If you have some, but not all, of the graduate education AND specialized experience described above, you may still qualify by combining the amount of creditable education and experience that you do have. To do so, first calculate the percentage of qualifying education you have as a percentage of the education required. Next, calculate the percentage of specialized experience you have as a percentage of the experience required. Then, add the two percentages. The total percentage must equal at least 100% for you to qualify. If you qualify based on a combination of graduate education and specialized experience, you must submit a copy of your official college transcript with your application.
A transcript must be submitted with your application if you are basing all or part of your qualifications on education.
Only education or degrees recognized by the U.S. Department of Education from accredited colleges, universities, schools, or institutions may be used to qualify for federal employment.

If you are using foreign education to meet qualification requirements, you must send a Certificate of Foreign Equivalency with your transcript in order to receive credit for that education.
