    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 the position of Supervisory Program Manager, you will be responsible for providing strategic management and overseeing the coordination and integration of numerous complex procurements, acquisition programs and portfolios at all levels within FEMA.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Determining the applicability and effect of new or proposed legislation, executive orders or regulations on component operations, procurement's and acquisition programs;
    • Overseeing the use of Federal and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) acquisition regulations, policies, procedures, goals and objectives;
    • Reviewing and implementing acquisition law and program management policies relating to procurement and acquisition programs;
    • Documenting the requirements of the procurement and acquisition process; with innovative strategies that support the Department's mission requirements;
    • Overseeing the overall planning, direction, and timely execution of a requirement, program or several program segments, each of which is managed through separate subordinate organizational units;
