FEMA Should Implement Consistent Joint Field Office Guidance

Executive Summary

Time is of the essence in establishing a Joint Field Office (JFO) as the nexus of disaster response and recovery efforts. FEMA needs to implement consistent JFO selection guidance so its disaster response is effective, efficient and economical. This audit was conducted as a follow up to our prior report on the JFO Selection in New Jersey and as part of our 2015 disaster deployment efforts in Texas and South Carolina.
