    Responsibilities

    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    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 provide advice and assistance to managers and specialist on purchasing items.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Evaluating fluctuations in rates of usage, availability from established suppliers, use of alternative sources of supply to verify currency of established.
    • Purchasing supplies and equipment via credit cards, purchase orders, Fed/Milstrip and GSA channels.
    • Reviewing discrepancies, submitting status requests and conducting open communication with customers, commercial carriers, contractors, vendors and depots on receipt of damage material, quality complaints, shortages, overage and other problems.

    Promotion Potential: Future promotions will be dependent on your ability to perform the duties at a higher level, the continuing need for an employee assigned to the higher level, and administrative approval.
