How can I apply for a job with ASO?

We make every effort to capture and retain incumbent employees to preserve your important qualifications in our workforce, and also to maintain trusted relationships that have developed over time between the incumbent workforce, NIH personnel, and associate contractors. Our goal is to fill 100% of our proposed organization with the most highly qualified employees we can find. That effort starts with YOU, the incumbent workforce. By hiring incumbents, we ensure team cohesion as the overall NIH Janitorial Services transitions to ASO. However, in order to meet the customer’s high standards some additional personnel must also be recruited from outside the incumbent ranks. Keys to our success in attracting the best and brightest employees and in getting the right people in the right positions on the NIH contract include:

  • An emphasis on open and early communications with prospective employees,
  • The use of extensive transition checklists to capture incumbent employee data,
  • The availability of home office recruiters with the right understanding of technical and security qualifications, and
  • Systems that capture and preserve such personnel data.
