    1. The Associate Director develops and implements OFAC sanctions enforcement standards, methods, practices, policies, and procedures, managing and supervising two Assistant Directors (for the Enforcement Division and for the Sanctions Compliance & Evaluation Division) whose subordinate staffs conduct enforcement investigations, issue administrative subpoenas, and take enforcement action with respect to apparent violations of U.S. sanctions laws and regulations. Incumbent reviews recommended enforcement actions and works closely with the Office of Chief Counsel (Foreign Assets Control) to ensure legal sufficiency. Incumbent reviews recommended referrals for criminal prosecution and supports criminal prosecutions at all stages, including the preparation and provision of expert testimony by OFAC Investigators or Officers in support of agencies prosecuting criminal sanctions related cases.

    2. The Associate Director exercises management authority over the analysis, assessment, processing, and resolution of all civil monetary penalty and settlement actions by OFAC. The Associate Director oversees, develops, and ensures the uniform and effective application and utilization of OFAC's Enforcement Guidelines to ensure an appropriate agency response to sanctions violations. The incumbent further oversees the collection and debt management of OFAC settlements and civil monetary penalties, which can exceed fees of several million dollars annually. The Associate Director oversees the Office's issuance of administrative subpoenas, cease and desist orders, cautionary letters, and blocking notices, as well as the preparation, vetting, and issuance of OFAC pre-penalty notices, findings of violation, and penalty notices, and the negotiation of settlement agreements. The Associate Director signs and issues OFAC pre-penalty notices and prepares and oversees penalty notice or settlement agreement packages for the Director's approval. These functions require significant coordination with the Office of Chief Counsel (Foreign Assets Control) and, when required, with the U.S. Justice Department.

In addition, the incumbent oversees the proper disclosure of recent OFAC enforcement actions through public announcements on OFAC's Web site and other media.

    3.

This includes providing support for U.S. prosecutions and other domestic law enforcement efforts related to sanctions enforcement. The incumbent works with high-ranking representatives of the Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney's Offices throughout the country, the FBI, Immigration & Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, the Bureau of Industry and Security at the Commerce Department, the U.S. Secret Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and IRS/CI on matters related to sanctions enforcement. In cooperation with these agencies, the incumbent protects and promotes OFAC's enforcement equities while developing mutually productive and cooperative relationships. The incumbent facilitates the appropriate flow of information among, and provision of training to, U.S. enforcement and intelligence agencies, located throughout the country, on sanctions matters. The incumbent is also responsible for coordinating efforts within OFAC and among U.S. Government agencies to proactively search for, identify, and secure blocked assets.

    4. The incumbent provides management supervision to the Assistant Director, Sanctions Compliance & Evaluation, who is responsible for providing sanctions compliance advice to the U.S. public at large as well as to foreign institutions. The Assistant Director and staff provide compliance advice on a daily basis to financial institutions, the trade and services community, and other U.S. businesses and individuals. This includes advice over a toll-free OFAC hotline that averages 325-350 calls per day.
