    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites.

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.

        • Responsibility for the work of assigned staff members who carry out highly technical and difficult logistics management program reviews and evaluations on a large scale, often involving multiple organizational echelons.
        • Conducting quantitative and qualitative analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of logistics program operations in meeting established agency goals and objectives.
