To ensure compliance, MSI has developed policies and procedures governing the identification, management and mitigation of OCI. This includes corporate level policies and specific OCI Management and Mitigation Plans for many of our international projects.

Position Summary:

The PERFORM project typically undertakes 60-80 assignments per year.

The Contractor will review the relevant versions of the PEFORM OCI Management and Mitigation Plans, a random sample of the Statements of Work for PERFORM work assignments, and PERFORM project documentation to assess the extent which MSI has complied with the requirements of its PERFORM OCI Management and Mitigation Plan(s).
