The NLSC identifies U.S. citizens who can provide high levels of proficiency in foreign languages and cultural expertise critical to national security for short-term temporary assignments when other resources are not available. The NLSC will fill gaps between requirements of DoD or other departments or agencies of the United States and available language skills where government employees are required or desired. The NLSC will reach out to U.S. citizens (age 18 or over) who can read, listen, speak, and write in English and read, listen, write and speak at least one other specified language, generally at or above skill level 3 as described by the proficiency guidelines of the Federal Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR). The DoD and the Intelligence Community agencies use these guidelines as the basis for language skill requirements identification, position descriptions, readiness indices and language bonus pay systems. Therefore, the ILR proficiency guidelines represent a common metric used by U.S. Government agencies as a basis for policy, planning and human capital decisions in operational, mission critical areas where language is required.
