The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through Social Solutions International to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position:
Senior Program Advisor (This is a two (2) year term position)
United States Agency for International Development/Bureau for Global Health
Location: Arlington, Virginia (Crystal City)
Salary: $114,590 – $148,967 (GS-14 Equivalent)
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
The U.S. Government’s (USG) global health priorities are to prevent child and maternal deaths, control the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and combat infectious diseases. In support of these priorities, USAID’s Bureau for Global Health (GH) is committed to the availability of high-quality pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and other essential health supplies for health programs in low- and middle-income countries worldwide through commodity donations and technical assistance that builds self-reliant country supply chains and local capacities to lead for health commodity security. GH currently manages an array of central commodity procurement and supply chain technical assistance mechanisms, collectively known as the implementing architecture for the Global Health Supply Chain Program (GHSC) to support USG field programs and USAID's global technical leadership. These mechanisms are managed across multiple GH technical offices that support HIV/AIDs, malaria, family planning/reproductive health, maternal and child health, and other public health programs.
GHSC mechanisms will end over the next few years, beginning in 2019. GH is thus embarking on a comprehensive redesign of the GHSC implementing architecture, with the aim to ensure that GH continuously improves its supply chain programs in order to serve the needs of USG global health programs. The redesign process will be complex, requiring various activities such as surveys and advisory groups to gather inputs from USG field programs, private sector/industry, academia, other stakeholders; regular communications with senior leaders in and outside the Agency; multiple technical working groups; close work with the Agency’s Office of Acquisition and Assistance (OAA), Office of General Counsel (GC), Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), and other Agency units; preparation and approval of redesign-related presentations and documents; and more. The redesign will be extremely high-profile, complex, and on a tight timeline. It calls for a dedicated, full-time, senior-level advisor to manage the redesign process and ensure strategic, out-of-the-box thinking, close coordination, adherence to established timelines, work product quality, effective communications, etc.
