The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) mission is to investigate and defeat criminal, terrorist, and foreign intelligence threats to the United States Navy and Marine Corps-ashore, afloat, and in cyberspace. Being a NCIS Special Agent is one of the most challenging and fulfilling careers in law enforcement. NCIS Special Agents gain broad law enforcement experience and are given responsibility early on in their careers.

The NCIS Economic Crimes Department (ECD) supports the overall NCIS mission by safeguarding the Department of Navy's (DON's) major acquisition programs and responding to allegations of corruption, financial fraud, and product substitution. NCIS has a dedicated group of Special Agents who specialize in investigating abuses in the procurement process. By reducing the threat of procurement fraud and product substitution, the DON will realize important cost savings and successfully procure quality products that meet safety standards for the war fighter, resulting in increased military readiness.

The ideal candidate would have experience or education directly related to financial crimes enforcement, procurement fraud enforcement, accounting, or auditing.
