    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 analyze and resolve complex issues related to the financial aspects of assigned programs and providing recommendations for financial planning, policy formulation and implementation, and decision-making.

    Typical assignments include: 

    • Providing current and future year spend plans and readjusts spend plans as unforeseen circumstances and changes in funding occur and advised senior managers on the status of fiscal resources and future requirements.
    • Consolidating data for viable overview of the financial status of operations. Prepares regular and specialized reports using a wide variety of sources for substantive agency programs.
    • Interpreting regulatory guidelines and budgetary directives and provides guidance and direction in the analysis and strategic approaches to matters related to monitoring and tracking financial activities for highly dynamic and volatile programs.

    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.
