Careers in Contracting Office
Sgt. 1st Class Shantae Mollison, a U.S. Army Reserve contracting specialist on active-duty orders with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District, shares information during a contracting team meeting in Pittsburgh, Jan. 30, 2024. The Pittsburgh District offers “tour of duty” positions to Army Reserve and National Guard Soldiers to work in their office full time to help fill vacant positions. Currently two noncommissioned officers work in the contracting office. The contracting office is responsible for researching and writing contracts for goods and services that meet specific needs provided by vendors or agencies outside of the government. In fiscal year 2023, Pittsburgh District’s contracting office completed more than 500 actions worth over $140 million. For the past three decades, the office executed contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars to upgrade the navigation system on the Monongahela River, and it will offer new contracts worth hundreds of millions more to construct new chambers on the Ohio River.
