    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 serve as the Regional Travel Coordinator providing authorative advice on travel matters. Additionally, provide recommendations to regional and field personnel to assist with carrying out their financial management responsibilities. Provide financial guidance and fiscal support to a deploying emergency response team.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Reviewing travel vouchers and other documents, organizing and sorting them properly, and verifying their accuracy and completeness, to ensure that vouchers or invoices are for items or services ordered, that funds have been obligated, that funds are available against the obligating document if more than one payment is being made, and that there is proper evidence of having received the services or goods paid for.
    • Reviewing accounts in the accounting system to ensure that individual transactions agree with and are supported by documentation and that transactions were processed according to established. Reconciles subsidiary ledgers to the general leader control accounts for accounts.
    • Assisting in training employees by familiarizing them with routine operating procedures and basic accounting technician policies and practices.

    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.
