Key Personnel/Identification of Roles and Responsibilities
The Finance/Administration Section, headed by the Finance/Administration
Section Chief, is responsible for all costs and financial considerations
of the incident. The Finance/Administration Section Chief handles:
Payment of personnel costs.
Financial considerations are not a major factor during most incident
operations. However, when using private-sector resources, or during incidents
where the agencies involved will be seeking reimbursement, the financial
considerations can be extensive.
If needed, the Finance/Administration Section may include the Time,
Procurement, Compensation/Claims, Cost, and Cost Recovery Units.
