This individual will serve as a Document Validation Specialist at a Public Assistance (PA) Consolidated Resource Center in Sacramento, CA. and will be responsible for reviewing applicant-submitted documentation and developing damage descriptions, scope of work and cost estimates for high-dollar completed-work subawards in compliance with federal rules. This position starts at a salary of $54,760 (IC-09). Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a member of the Public Assistance team within FEMA.
Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
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.
This position is being announced under FEMA's Cadre of On-call Response/Recovery Employee (CORE) Program. This is a temporary appointment in the Excepted Service, not to exceed 2 years, with the option to extend based on workload and funding availability. Veterans Preference does not apply to the CORE selection process.
The incumbent will be responsible for reviewing applicant-submitted documentation and developing damage descriptions, scopes of work and cost estimates for high-dollar grants in compliance with federal rules. Typical assignments include:
- Collecting, organizing, and reviewing applicant-submitted documentation in support of Public Assistance grants where work is complete.
- Reviewing and validating applicant-submitted documentation in support of Public Assistance grants where work is complete.
- Developing damage description and dimensions, scopes of work, and costs based on applicant-provided documentation.
