    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, typical assignments include but are not limited to:

    • Processing billings and close out of all requests for Federal assistance using Action Request Forms, Mission Assignment (MA) Tasking Forms, and Mission Assignment Forms, from States and other Federal departments and agencies.
    • Reviewing and processing requests for reimbursement including obtaining approval of the Federal Approving Official (FAO) for authorization for payment.
    • Assisting with the coordination of the mission scope of work, cost estimates, and estimated dates of completion with Federal agencies.
    • Assisting with organizing, coordinating, and executing quantitative/qualitative studies and analyses of recurring or emerging disaster issues, new or modified program/management policies, regulations, goals, or objectives.
    • Organizing, conducting, and completing follow up tasks for senior leaders’ review, validated disaster issues, related improvement plans, and corrective actions.
    • Participates in the development of data collection plans for use during declared disasters using all hazards plans, historical disaster information, and previous Lessons Learned/Critical Infrastructure Protection findings.
    • Participates in deliberate planning process to include mission analysis and course of action development planning workgroups and presentations.

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
