NSA Overview

The professionals at the National Security Agency (NSA) have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information.

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the National Security Agency independently plans and conducts investigations, inspections, audits, and reviews of programs and activities; keeps the Director and Congress informed about violations of law and regulations and other serious problems in the Agency's programs; recommends corrective actions; and reports on the progress made in implementing those actions.

  • Serve as a legal and policy advisor to the NSA IG, the Deputy IG, the Assistant IGs, the Counsel to the OIG, and other OIG staff on complex, novel legal issues arising out of statutes, Presidential Directives, Executive Orders, regulations, and other normative sources.

  • Assist OIG teams and leadership in identifying and evaluating legal issues regarding NSA programs and activities arising from special studies, reviews, and otherwise, with a focus on Intelligence Oversight matters involving the Agency's use of authorities related to its intelligence gathering mission and the associated protection of civil liberties and US Persons' privacy.

  • Respond to legal queries from OIG inspectors, auditors, and investigators.

  • Analyze OIG documents for legal sufficiency, and prepare legal memoranda to support OIG positions.

  • Represent the OIG before internal NSA elements, other Intelligence Community agencies, the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, Congress, and other external entities on a wide range of legal and policy issues.

  • Maintain effective relations with counsel to other Offices of Inspectors General and with NSA's Office of General Counsel.

  • Keep abreast of Congressional and Executive activity that might affect NSA or the OIG, and analyze legislation, programs, or plans to assess the impact on the NSA or the OIG.

  • Advocate, advise and represent the OIG's official position in legal and legislative proceedings.

The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information. The NSA Office of General Counsel (OGC) is seeking superior applicants who have experience serving as legal counsel within the legislative branch. At NSA OGC you will analyze cutting-edge technical and intelligence issues, provide legal advice that relates to high-profile current events affecting our national security, and support NSA officials in their engagements with Congress. The successful candidate will join a small team of legislative counsel who apply their expertise, skills, and education to help NSA navigate challenges not found in the private sector or at any other government agency. You will have the opportunity to make a global impact on a daily basis as you work with other top caliber professionals at the highest levels of the Agency and across the U.S. Government. This critical work ensures that NSA operations comply with the Agency's legal obligations to Congress while also protecting both our national security and civil liberties. Because the twin missions of NSA - signals intelligence and cybersecurity - encompass many of the most important and dynamic challenges our Government faces today, there is rarely a typical day for an NSA legislative counsel. We are routinely presented with exciting and novel legal issues concerning legislative oversight. In tackling these challenges, our attorneys work directly with senior officials at the Department of Justice's National Security Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Council at the White House, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Department of Defense, as well as other agencies in the Executive Branch and relevant committees of Congress. More broadly, the successful candidate will join an office that is comprised of a number of legal practice groups staffed by NSA attorneys who work in a highly classified setting and are entrusted with tremendous responsibility as they advise the Director and other senior leaders at the Agency on a diverse and complex spectrum of issues related to gathering the foreign intelligence information needed to fight international terrorism, espionage, transnational crime, and narcotics, to defeat foreign cyber adversaries trying to steal national secrets, and to provide intelligence support to critical military overseas tactical operations, all while protecting our civil liberties and ensuring strict compliance with the Constitution and our laws. Because the NSA is a Department of Defense agency, our attorneys have a unique opportunity to be directly involved in national security operations working alongside military and civilian colleagues, as well as to interact with the private sector in cybersecurity and other matters. In short, many OGC attorneys say they can't imagine working in a more exciting and important position. Description of Position The responsibilities of a legislative counsel at the NSA can include: * Advising the Agency on legal matters involving the Agency's interactions with Congress * Analyzing legislation to determine impact on the Agency * Representing the Agency's official position in legislative proceedings * Representing the Agency in interactions with Congress * Conferring with/educating clients, customers, or stakeholders on legal or policy issues * Determining the legal sufficiency of documents * Drafting legal opinions * Making legal determinations in accordance with laws, regulations, professional standards, or Agency policies and procedures Skills Description of Skills The ideal candidate is a highly-motivated and qualified attorney with excellent oral and written communication skills, a desire for continual learning, possesses problem-solving, analytic, and interpersonal skills, and is: * detail-oriented * customer and results oriented * able to adjust to changing situational requirements * able to build relationships across the Agency and with external stakeholders * able to manage multiple tasks with competing timelines and deliverables Qualifications Salary Range: $96,970-$148,967 (Senior) * The qualifications listed are the minimum acceptable to be considered for the position.
