    Responsibilities

    When disaster strikes, America looks to FEMA. Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (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 be responsible for soliciting, evaluating, negotiating, awarding, administering, analyzing, advising on, and terminating contracts for the procurement of supplies and services. Typical assignments include:

    • Performing contract pre-award work to secure contracts for the acquisition of goods and services; ensuring that procurements are obtained from responsible sources at fair and reasonable prices.
    • Examining and evaluating of a contractor's cost estimates or price proposals to determine the necessity and reasonableness of proposed contract costs.
    • Monitoring and administering contract performance after a contract is awarded to ensure proper progress, negotiating any modification to a contract, and to ensure that contract activities are completed.
    • Performing work related to the contract post-award process and analyzes or interpreting aspects of procurement policies or procedures to recommend actions or alternative policies or procedures and reviews contract actions for compliance with applicable policies and procedures.
    • Leading the team in identifying, distributing and balancing workload and tasks among employees in accordance with established work flow, skill level and/or occupational specialization; and ensuring that each employee has an integral role in developing the final team product.
