Employee Misconduct: How Can FEMA Improve the Integrity of its Workforce

July 27, 2017 10:00 AM | HOUSE CAPITOL VISITOR CENTER (HVC) ROOM 210

A recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report examined challenges in how the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) handles employee misconduct. Such misconduct by FEMA’s workforce can undermine the agency’s critical mission of disaster preparation, response, and recovery. This hearing will review GAO’s findings and efforts by FEMA to address these management issues.
