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.

- Performing work related to the contract pre-award process in compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulations and Agency policy.
- Monitoring and administering contract performance after a contract is awarded to ensure pro per progress, negotiate any modifications to a contract, and to ensure that contract activities are completed.
- Representing and defending the Agency's interest throughout the procurement process.
- Reviewing and interpreting contract provisions for contractors and Agency managers/staff and provides appropriate advice and guidance.
- Ensuring compliance with technical, financial, delivery, and other terms of the contract.
