    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 primarily perform post award functions related to the Stafford Act Disaster Declarations. Duties may include, but are not limited to:

    • Analyzing, negotiating and preparing prime grants and sub-grants, budgets, and associated transmittal documents; interpreting, applying organizational regulations, policies, and procedures.
    • Performing prime grant and sub-grant award administration including producing award letters, amendments, and closeouts.
    • Testing draw downs of advances and expenditures for compliance, allow-ability, and reasonableness of costs in the budget.
    • Participating in reviewing budgets of proposals that have been recommended for funding and providing assessment of conformance with applicable guidelines.
    • Ensuring that awards are issued in accordance with funding agency requirements.
    • Conducting risk assessment and ensuring compliance with FEMA policy.
    • Analyzing grant reports, address noncompliance, and recommend actions.
    • Coordinating with agency officials, customers, internal personnel, and external stakeholders to assure adequate grants program support.
    • Performing other duties as assigned.

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.

    Travel Required

    25% or less - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.
