Inspection of FEMA's Regional Offices - Region V

Executive Summary

We reviewed 12 of FEMA Region V’s 166 disaster-related responsibilities and determined that the region was not meeting 3 of these 12 responsibilities. Specifically, Region V did not: (1) have policies and procedures to provide temporary public transportation during disasters; (2) process first-level Public Assistance appeals in a timely manner; and (3) hold mandated meetings to inform the Regional Administrator about the region’s emergency management issues.
