    Responsibilities

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is calling on those who want to help protect American interests and secure our Nation. DHS Components work collectively to prevent terrorism; secure borders and our transportation systems; protect the President and other dignitaries; enforce and administer immigration laws; safeguard cyberspace; and ensure resilience to disasters. We achieve these vital missions through a diverse workforce spanning hundreds of occupations. Make an impact; join DHS.

    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.

    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 ensure that the program policies and procedures are implemented in support of Recovery’s disaster assistance activities in accordance with Robert T Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Typical assignments include:

    • Providing senior leadership with program evaluation results that are utilized in the resource management process for greater program effectiveness.
    • Providing advice and recommendations regarding program planning and funding management issues; interpreting broad policy and program directives; and making recommendations of time-phasing of planning actions along with any acquisition management actions.
    • Developing and implementing plans designed to enhance relationships with targeted stakeholders.
    • Providing management with short-range and long-range recommendations that extend from management analysis studies, with particular emphasis on the anticipated value of planned changes.
    • Providing guidance and recommendations to allow senior levels to make reprogramming decisions early enough to facilitate optimum use of funds.
