This memo is to bring awareness to the operational gap within the Engineering and Product Delivery department (EPDD) in the organization. The project office notified the EPDD with the preliminary booked project assignments for the next calendar year. The EPDD is operating at full capacity and does not have additional capacity to work on new projects. For the past three months the EPDD engineers are reporting more than 40 hours a week with an average of 50. Based on the upcoming projects, there is an immediate need to hire three experienced engineers. By filling the gap, this will allow the new hires to come up to speed in time and work on the new upcoming assignments as soon as possible with little interruption.

The following job analysis and position descriptions, qualifiers, and requirements propose to meet the organizational goals.
