The Bureau of Engraving and Printing within the Treasury Department seeks a new candidate to fill the role of the agency’s currency technology officer.
A notice posted April 25 on the USAJobs website states that the CTO will oversee BEP’s research and development efforts and serve as chair of the technical and product development committees to review its technology and product investments.
The chosen candidate will also collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to come up with specific goals for technology and product development organizations that focus on identifying, evaluating and developing tools that can aid the agency’s efforts to address U.S. paper currency authentication and counterfeiting issues.
Duties of the selected candidate include developing strategic vision and priorities that align with BEP and U.S. Currency Program needs; working with the Federal Reserve Board, U.S. Secret Service and the Federal Reserve System’s currency technology office; serving as BEP’s executive leader and owner of the Technology Development Process and Banknote Development Process; and cultivating talent management, the notice said.
BEP also indicated that the future CTO will report to a deputy director or chief operating officer upon the completion of a planned reorganization at the agency.
