Why the job exists
The primary objective of this position is to provide Real Property Installed Equipment (RPIE) support services on government contracts.  As opportunities increase we are seeking individuals for part-time positions who can function as a RPIE Technician for collection of facility asset inventory data in Microsoft Excel at medical and medical support facilities.  Experience with the use of computers and Microsoft products it essential.  There will be an opportunity to learn to populate data in the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support-Facility Maintenance (DMLSS-FM) system. The survey includes locating Real Property, collecting manufacturer specifications in Microsoft Excel, and producing/applying survey labels. Experience at a Hospital or large Commercial buildings is a plus. A minimum of one year experience with RPIE support services is preferred, but experience with maintenance of building systems or DMLSS knowledge are also acceptable skills.  The hourly wage will be $18.00 - $20.00 based on experience.
