Attached are narratives for the positions forwarded earlier today to
simplify understanding of the positions.  These positions are posted on
USAJobs.gov and you can access by copying the Job Announcement Number

the T-21 initiative and all core specialties have been considered, but
these are 180 series only.   The positions are all decentralized and
OMHS boards will convene to evaluate all qualified CV's and resumes
