The primary mission of the Antitrust Division (ATR), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), is to promote competition in the U.S. economy through enforcement of, improvements to, and education about antitrust laws and principles. Its goal is an environment in which U.S. consumers receive goods and services of the highest quality at the lowest price, and in which U.S. businesses compete on a level playing field nationally and internationally. In recent years, the Division has aggressively pursued far-reaching criminal cartel activity and important civil matters while reviewing a large number of pre-merger filings, many involving complex issues and global conglomerates. By protecting competition across industries and geographic borders, the Division’s work serves as a catalyst for economic efficiency and growth with benefits accruing to both American consumers and American businesses.

The Information Systems Support Group (ISSG) is responsible for providing computer hardware and software systems and support to the entire Division. Within ISSG, the Litigation Support Section (LSS) is charged with the support and management of all aspects related to a case investigation or litigation. The DC Litigation Support Section (LSS) of the Antitrust Division has an urgent need to fill eleven technical and administrative positions to provide support to our very busy Electronic Processing Center (EPC). The EPC manages all the production data that comes into and goes out of the Division.

The Data Specialists, which currently comprise of approximately 15 staff, handles a mixture of tasks, which include: processing data using LAW, regularly loading large volumes of production data, running exports from the database for creating discovery party productions, downloading files from our file sharing tool, Justice Enterprise File Sharing system or JEFS, and performing quality control on load and export files to ensure accuracy.

The work performed in the EPC is crucial to our legal teams and the overall success of their investigations. In order for the staff to perform proper document review, the data must be processed and loaded to Relativity as quickly and accurately as possible. The EPC is a very fast-paced environment, often receiving tight court mandated deadlines, therefore, candidates must possess the ability to multi-task and work in a high stress environment.
