What We Do
Mission Support's goal in Region I is to provide overall administrative, human capital, procurement, security and information technology for the steady state operations of the regional office. The Mission Support division provides support for disaster requirements and administers various communications programs with its two branches: Administrative Services and Information Technology.
The Administrative Services Branch manages budget and fiscal requirements, acquisition, personnel, payroll processing and travel management programs. The branch also manages the Disaster Assistance Employee (DAE) program, as well as other administrative services to support the Region and Joint Field Offices.
The Information Technology Branch provides and manages the telecommunications, support enterprise infrastructure and network services, and safety and security requirements for regional activities as well as state and local governments. For disaster operations, this branch provides network and telecommunication services and computing assets.
