FEMA Public Assistant Contractor

15 days ago
When it comes to FEMA disaster recovery work, we’re focused on helping our communities to recover for a brighter tomorrow.




If you want to join a company committed to you and your success, invest your technical expertise with us.




Jacobs currently has a contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), known as the “Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contract (PA TAC IV)” to provide technical assistance support for FEMA disaster-related operations throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.




In Puerto Rico, we’re building a technical roster in an effort to be ready for potential, future work with FEMA. We’re seeking candidates that have a background as Environmental Planners, Engineers, Construction Managers, Project Managers, Financial Analysts and other related technical 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 disasters (roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, water treatment facilities, etc.).




As a FEMA Public Assistance Contractor, FEMA will utilize your expertise to validate infrastructure damage and record detailed damage descriptions. Via desktop and/or field inspections, you may be asked to review and analyze professional architectural/engineering reports and designs or as-built plans, then document your analysis. You could be asked to develop scopes of work, along with developing and reviewing cost estimates.




For our FEMA client, qualified candidates must be U.S. citizens, able to clear Department of Homeland Security background check for security clearance level of “Public Trust”, and open to working 8-12 hours per day for 5-6 days per week. You’ll potentially deploy to the field in remote disaster conditions, and most of the job responsibilities will be conducted in a FEMA office. Due to the nature of this type of unpredictable work, you must also have the ability to mobilize within 24-48 hours if ever needed to deploy, commit to up to 6 months or longer on a disaster deployment, and be flexible for contingent type of project work.




Bring your expertise and passion for FEMA disaster recovery work, and we’ll empower you to restore and improve our communities in Puerto Rico.
