The ideal candidate for this position will be a detail oriented, analytical thinker with strong oral and written communication skills and experience in program analysis and data analytics. This position starts at a salary of $112,021 (GS-14). Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a member of the Office of Policy and Program Analysis team within FEMA.

EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.


In this position, you will serve as the Analysis and Communications Branch Chief within the Enterprise Analytics Division in FEMA’s Office of Policy and Program Analysis. Typical assignments include:

  • Overseeing the planning, organization, and completion of analytical studies and presentations to senior leadership involving many or all major Agency organizations and programs.
  • Performing analysis and providing expert advice to ensure linkage of strategic planning, program operations business practices, and fiscal resources.
  • Serving as technical expert, exercising independence and judgement in collecting, tracking and interpreting program information; retrieving, managing, and analyzing large quantities of complex data; and providing qualitative and quantitative analysis of budget and performance information.
  • Developing long-range program plans, goals, objectives, and milestones or evaluating the effectiveness of programs.
