    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.

Typical duties include:

    • Coordinating, facilitating and optimizing investigative and operational efforts through partnerships; harnesses the unique resources, authorities, jurisdictions and expertise of FEMA and leverages those of all partners.
    • Ensuring the enforcement of Federal statutes, regulations, rules and policies as they relate to internal investigations are followed.
    • Providing advice on security and law enforcement needs and problems, interpreting agency guidelines, and issuing instructions on methods and procedures.
    • Preparing, analyzing, formulating, developing, revising and implementing FEMA-wide policies, standards and procedures to support internal investigations and new and revised legislation, Executive Orders and regulations pertaining to federal investigations.
    • Supervising and directing a staff of investigators performing a full range of investigation duties to include the supervising investigators and support staff as well as overseeing the planning, inspection, and management of complex investigations related to employee and contractor misconduct and alleged or suspected criminal violations of Federal laws.
