Deputy Director, Public Assistance Division

Company: Federal Emergency Management Agency
Location: Washington
Posted on: October 18, 2020

Job Description:

This is a Senior Executive Service (SES) position located within FEMA's Office of Response and Recovery. The Deputy Director, Public Assistance Division is responsible for developing, managing, directing, and evaluating all Division programs and activities; overseeing the development and administration of policies and procedures for all assigned programs; and managing, directing, and ensuring accountability for all work of the Division.

There are no educational requirements for this position.

Serves as the principal advisor to the Division Director on the development and maintenance of program policies and procedures, and analyzes the capabilities and resources needed for pending and on-going recovery issues as they relate to the provision of the Public Assistance program. The incumbent represents a highly visible program to the Directorate, Agency, Department, Administration, Congress, citizens, and other external stakeholders involved in disasters. This position reports to the Division Director, Public Assistance Division.

The incumbent manages the Public Assistance Program to provide supplemental Federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities, and facilities of certain private non-profit organizations while also encouraging the protection of these damaged facilities from future events by providing assistance for hazard mitigation measures during the recovery process.

The incumbent develops and maintains relationships with State, tribal, and local governments as well as certain private, non-profit organizations to ensure the success of the Public Assistance Programs so that communities can quickly respond to and recover from disasters declared by the President.

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.

Each applicant is required to submit a comprehensive narrative statement, which addresses BOTH the mandatory Technical and Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) outlined below. Applicants who do not submit a supplemental narrative statement that addresses these factors will be ineligible for further consideration. The narrative portion for the Technical Qualifications MUST NOT EXCEED 6 PAGES TOTAL. The supplemental narrative statement for the Executive Core Qualifications should address the necessary level of management skills, characteristics, qualities, specialized knowledge, and technical competence that would indicate successful performance in the SES. This evidence must include clear and concise examples that emphasize the applicant's level of responsibilities, scope, and complexity of programs managed, program accomplishments, policy initiatives, and level of contacts. The narrative portion for the Executive Core Qualifications MUST NOT EXCEED 10 PAGES. For guidance in preparing a narrative statement addressing the ECQs, applicants can access OPM's website at https://www.opm.gov/policy-data- oversight/senior-executive-service/executive-core-qualifications/

The following categories of applicants may omit the mandatory Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs), but MUST address the Technical Qualification factors:


  • Applicants who are currently serving under a SES career appointment (must provide a copy of Standard Form 50--Notification of Personnel Action that documents career appointment to the SES).
  • Applicants who are eligible for reinstatement to the SES (must provide a copy of Standard Form 50--Notification of Personnel Action that documents career appointment to the SES).
  • Applicants who are graduates of OPM-approved SES Candidate Development Programs (must provide proof of OPM Qualifications Review Board certification).

    All required application materials will be reviewed to determine if applicants meet the mandatory qualification requirements. Qualification and experience determinations will be based only on the information supplied by the applicant. The best-qualified candidates for this position will be distinguished from other applicants by an evaluation committee to determine the degree to which qualification requirements are met. Applicants should provide specific evidence of possession of the mandatory Technical and Executive Core Qualifications, as outlined under Qualifications Criteria, to assist the evaluation committee in determining the best- qualified candidates that will be considered for final selection. The Executive Core Qualifications of the selectee are subject to approval by the Office of Personnel Management Qualifications Review Board (QRB). Unless you have already been certified by an OPM QRB in the past, your ECQs must be certified by an OPM QRB before appointment can occur.

    • Demonstrated management-level experience leading teams in the development, communication, and execution of a strategic vision or plan that changes business processes, service standards, or program delivery models.

      Applicants currently serving under a career Senior Executive Service (SES) appointment, eligible for reinstatement into SES, or have successfully completed a SES Candidate Development Program (CDP) approved by OPM are not required to address the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs); but a narrative statement for each of the Technical Qualifications (TQs) is recommended.
