    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 assignments include:

    • Serve as an audit liaison, receiving and coordinating staff participation in audit engagements, including those from the Office of the Inspector General and U.S. Government Accountability Office. 
    • Coordinate activities across divisions and organizations related to risk assessment, corrective action planning, remediation, and internal controls testing.
    • Track financial statement audit engagements and notices of finding and recommendation (NFRs).
    • Manage internal controls assessments, including those concerning financial, contractual, information technology (IT), and cybersecurity data.
    • Analyze information and perform necessary outreach to ensure appropriate and complete responses.
