 FEMA uses the PA TAC nationally to obtain Construction Managers, Construction Inspectors, Project Managers, PA TAC Coordinators and other related professional services to assist state and local municipalities in developing grant applications for Federal Public Assistance funding for the repair of their infrastructure damaged by natural or man-made disasters (roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, water treatment facilities, etc.).
Program (PA TAC) Coordinators will have a high degree of proficiency in creation and maintenance of spreadsheet software; the ability to maintain 100% accuracy of records with respect to staff attendance, vehicles, rotations, travel expense and salary processing for large numbers of staff. In this role, you will work independently and collaboratively with FEMA to provide needed skills and expertise in furtherance of the Public Assistance Program.

• Must be able to travel 100% of time to different locations assigned within the U.S, with scheduled rotations built in for deployment.
