The Congressional Research Service (CRS) Government and Finance Division is seeking an Analyst on the Appropriations Process to focus on congressional rules, practices, and precedents related to the consideration of appropriations legislation on the floor of the House and Senate, as well as organization and procedure of congressional committees and the role of congressional leadership in the appropriations process.

The ideal candidate will have knowledge of and experience with congressional appropriations procedures, and must be able to work as part of a collaborative team. Strong writing, research, data analysis and presentation skills are essential. Candidates with experience explaining congressional appropriations principles, policy, and practices in terms that resonate with audiences without their level of expertise are encouraged to apply.

The analyst will locate and interpret factual information; conduct research; prepare objective, nonpartisan descriptive, background, and analytical reports; and participate in team research projects and seminars. The analyst is also expected to develop over time the skills necessary to provide legislative analysis and consultation on appropriations procedures to congressional committees, Members, and staff at increasingly sophisticated levels.
