    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.

    • Assisting with the management of complex studies and projects in Human Resource (HR) management functions relating to Presidential Appointees, Senior Executives, Schedule C employees, SES Candidate Development Program, SES Performance Program, and the SES Biennial Program.
    • Rendering advisory services and authoritative policy interpretations on the most complicated human resources processes and issues and complex executive resources cases.
    • Assisting with implementing policies which become the authoritative basis for the functioning of the executive personnel system.
