Leidos is currently looking for a Transition Lead. Transition Lead conducts Daily Status Meetings (DSMs) with the Regional Transition Coordinators (RTCs) and relevant transition stakeholders; conducts weekly Transition Status Meetings (TSMs) with the Government; ensures all transition issues are immediately addressed to minimize disruption to UFS operations and conducts an Operational Transition Readiness (OTR) review, culminating in receipt of ATO. The Transiton Lead provides current Transition status and our risk register via the UFS Dashboard. This allows immediate visibility into the Contract Transition status by all stakeholders.



  • Primary responsibility is to perform assigned on-site duty (typically Tier 2)
  • Lead and coordinate all site groups in region for status, issues, needs
  • Identify and forecast future talent needs based on projected changes to service architectures and evolving site needs. Collaborate on staffing strategies across the team.
  • Optimally schedule UFS personnel. As situations evolve, our Regional Site Leads continually monitor and adjust staffing levels to maintain mission support at the right level. At 24x7 sites, this is performed by the shift leads in coordination with the Regional Site Lead. The heatmaps are also used to provide follow-the-sun support to users by ensuring that personnel are readily able to deliver in active time zones.
  • Site status, issues, staffing, customer needs/concerns
  • Coordinate and document knowledge transfer
  • Execute regional transition tasks, mitigate risks, and review site data
  • Conduct site surveys to fully understand the environment in their region’s site location

Each RSL is a responsible Tier 2 analyst based in the specific region with the experience and site/regional knowledge necessary to perform as a lead while attending to their full time Tier 2 incident workoff duties.

The RSLs direct the entry of site-specific data into the Known Error (KEDB) and Knowledge Management Databases (KMDB) to better support the user base with empowered Tier 0/1 capabilities.
