Federal 100: Bobby McCane

Master of disaster. McCane coordinated all acquisition activities related to the government’s response to natural disasters in 2018 — a year that saw an exceptional number of wildfires, floods and other calamities nationwide.

McCane also enhanced the FEMA Integration Teams program by bringing together more disciplines to improve the quality and timeliness of the agency’s procurement activities.
