Full-Time Administrative Project Manager
New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services
Administrative Project Manager
The Department of Citywide Administrative Services’ (“DCAS”) Division of Energy Management (“DEM”) serves as the hub for energy management for City government operations, including energy procurement, building retrofits, improved operations & maintenance, training, performance tracking and management of electricity, natural gas, and steam accounts that serve 80 agencies and more than 4,000 buildings.
DEM is tasked with leading the City’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (“GHG”) emissions by 80 percent by 2050 from a 2005 baseline (“80 x 50”). Specifically, the City has set a near-term goal to reduce GHG emissions from government buildings 35 percent by 2025 (“35 x 25”). DEM will look to both demand and supply side initiatives to accomplish these goals.
Through reducing energy usage and increasing the supply of low carbon energy within governmental operations, using its infrastructure assets as a test bed for new and innovative energy efficiency and clean energy generation technologies, and developing use cases for the private sector to build off of DEM will achieve its near-term goals and put the city on a path toward 80 x 50. It is important to understand the interactions – both upstream and downstream – that our energy initiatives have on other policy goals of the City including air quality, public health, economic growth, equity and resiliency. Our energy initiatives must work in concert with and to the greatest extent possible complement the broader goals of the City.
DEM seeks to hire an Administrative Project Manager, serving as Director of Technical Support Services. This hire will serve as a subject matter expert to develop technical review and validation tools, and strategies for key DEM programs. Responsibilities will include:
• Maintaining and augmenting existing, and developing new, tools, parameters, and guidelines for DEM engineers to utilize in evaluating applications for competitive and non-competitive funding programs;
• Carrying out technical grant application evaluations, and reviewing technical evaluations of other staff
