JOB SUMMARY:

About the Agency

When disaster strikes, America looks to FEMA. Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (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.

The Program Analyst (Performance Standards Analysis) evaluates the impact of new program policies and procedures on the National Emergency Management Information System (NEMIS) and determines measures of effectiveness related to National Processing Service Center (NPSC) functions in order to perform detailed performance analysis. This position starts at a salary of $64,161 (IC-11). The duty station is Winchester, VA, Hyattsville, MD, or Denton, TX.

Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a member of the Office of Response and Recovery, Recovery Directorate, Individual Assistance Division, Individuals and Households Branch team within FEMA.

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.

This position is being announced under FEMA's Cadre of On-call Response/Recovery Employee (CORE) Program. This is a temporary appointment in the Excepted Service, not to exceed 2 years, with the option to extend based on workload and funding availability. Veterans Preference does not apply to the CORE selection process.
