We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce.

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 perform assignments in relation to creating and directing the creation of requests for investigations.
Typical assignments include:
- Review complex reports of investigations; identify potentially disqualifying information; resolve derogatory/discrepant information and prepare summary of findings;
- Render final suitability/fitness and national security eligibility determinations, as well as, preliminary Enter-On Duty decisions based on review and evaluation of closed investigations and security forms;
- Accurately record adjudicative determinations in internal and external systems used to validate background investigation information;
- Draft clear and concise correspondence to support adverse determination and/or elicit additional information
Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.
