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.
This position is located in the IT Services Division (MWITS) of the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center. As an IT Architect, the IT Specialist (ENTARCH) is responsible for the development of strategic information technology architecture to achieve the organization’s mission and evolve as needs and environment change. Typical areas of responsibility include:
• Providing technical guidance and design plans and specifications for major IT systems to ensure interoperability
• Determining gaps in current and target IT architecture and developing plans to improve business process support with emerging technologies
• Preparing implementation procedures and analyzing draft enterprise architecture capabilities for approval by senior leaders
• Reviewing proposed architecture diagrams for technical compliance, evaluating solicitations and proposals, and representing the organization to external partners.
