    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 a Budget Analyst responsible for providing technical and analytical expertise on a variety of issues related to the implementation and administration of the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution system (PPBE) throughout USFA. Typical assignments include:

    • Providing USFA elements with expertise required to support planning, analyzing, coordinating, evaluating, and directing the development of budget requirements, appropriations, and allocations to support overall Agency objectives.
    • Conducting a broad range of special studies and investigations and developing compromises and solutions to problems and conflicts that may have an agency-wide impact. 
    • Coordinating with program managers in the development and updating of budget requirements to ensure effective and efficient operation of the USFA.
    • Providing guidance to program and administrative staff in the explanation and resolution of problems or questions related to PPBE, primarily programming and budgeting.
    • Researching, evaluating, and providing feedback on problematic trends and patterns in programming and budgeting requirements.

    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.
