    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. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    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 serve as a Program Specialist to support a broad range of initiatives across FEMA's Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration (FIMA). Typical assignments include:

    • Undertaking research and developing policy proposals.
    • Serving as the Division point of contact on meeting evolving records management requirements and participating in the Records Management.
    • Monitoring and developing strategies for various FEMA and DHS compliance requirements related to privacy, data security, etc., and integrate practices within the Division that support compliance.
    • Assisting in addressing repetitive loss structures.
    • Improving the use and customer experience of the Increased Cost of Compliance program.
    • Supporting revisions and updating of the National Floodplain Insurance Program (NFIP) technical bulletins.
