FEMA has a serious problem with mission focus and what makes missions successful. Logistics planning and experienced logisticians are seriously lacking. Probably due to the poor pay for this expertise. They can't move quickly as a result. They have operations and community outreach personnel and nepotism galore, but no expertise how to transport, supply, maintain, store, distribute and all the other logistics functions. They rely on sitting up contracts as needs arise (takes too much time) and because serious sourcing was not done durng non-crisis times they waste tax dollars.
On behalf of Fema though it should be remembered that FEMA cannot move into a State until the govenor invites them and asks for their help.
