An assignee position with PM-ISE is a unique opportunity to advance your career. We directly support Executive Offices of the President and lead a significant number of interagency and government-wide initiatives. If you are interested and your management is supportive of a one-year tour, then please contact our Chief of Staff at 202-331-2490 or email us through our Contact Us page. Currently, only assignee positions are available (i.e., those reimbursed by your agency). Subscribe to receive email updates when new items are posted.

This office is a challenging and rewarding place to work that is driven by a complex, government-wide vision: “National security through responsible information sharing.” We are accountable for planning, managing, and overseeing interagency partners in their information sharing operations, but we do not directly control agency programs, their resources, or personnel. We work in close partnership with federal agencies, state, local, and tribal governments, the private sector, and international partners. We have a small team, limited resources, a large portfolio, and a multifaceted set of stakeholders and missions. Our priorities change frequently in response to emerging issues and White House direction. Our operations are characterized as fast paced, dynamic, and sometimes stressful. We work daily with the Nation’s most senior and influential leaders in counterterrorism, law enforcement, homeland security, industry, cybersecurity, and technology. Working directly for numerous organizations within the Executive Office of the President, we successfully conduct our mission at the highest level of the federal government, making a demonstrable impact on a national scale. High performing individuals are recognized, rewarded, and given incentive to advance.

The following is feedback from current assignees:

As a Department of Homeland Security assignee to the PM-ISE, my focus is supporting the DHS mission through the eyes of the Information Sharing Environment (ISE). This approach matches the best of both mission spaces where my subject matter expertise (geospatial) can be applied to information sharing, or more to the point, the removal of barriers to geospatial information sharing. The ISE allows me to work in the areas of policy, interoperability, and architecture across domains (Intel, SBU and Unclassified) and with federal stakeholders and industry partners. The challenges are significant, the opportunities diverse, and the potential mission benefits are limitless.

I really am enjoying my joint duty tour in PM-ISE as a NSA assignee. It is a great place to work and learn about how the government operates. I have had many great experiences working with senior officials from many different parts of the government. As a member of the intelligence community, it is rare to get the chance to interact with and learn about other parts of the government such as law enforcement, homeland security, and health, as well as state, local, and tribal agencies. I now have this wonderful opportunity and am taking full advantage.

I am the DHS assignee to the Classified Information-Sharing and Safeguarding Office, a function assigned to the PM-ISE by the so-called WikiLeaks Executive Order (EO 13587-- Structural Reforms to Improve the Security of Classified Networks and the Responsible Sharing and Safeguarding of Classified Information). As the DHS assignee to CISSO, I support both DHS and CISSO by representing the CISSO perspective to DHS and vice-versa. As part of the CISSO team, I have had many opportunities to contribute to the development of national-level decisions regarding the security and capabilities of federal classified networks. For example, CISSO was the principal support to OMB in defining clear functional targets for agencies to develop improved safeguarding capabilities for their classified networks. I have also had an impact on the federal strategy for establishing interoperable identity and access-management capabilities on federal networks at all classification levels. Such a capability is critical to enabling maximum responsible information sharing, and has been a long-standing personal interest that my assignment at PM-ISE has let me develop.
