POSITION DESCRIPTION

BACKGROUND

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) is responsible for facilitating and coordinating U.S. Government (USG) humanitarian assistance overseas in response to all types of international disasters, including slow-onset disasters such as droughts or famine, natural disasters such as earthquakes or floods, or man-made disasters such as conflict or war. BHA is responsible for planning, coordinating, developing, achieving, monitoring, and evaluating international humanitarian assistance falling into two conceptual areas:

● Humanitarian Response activities comprise needs-based humanitarian assistance provided to save lives, alleviate suffering, and protect human dignity during and in the aftermath of emergencies. Humanitarian assistance is grounded in humanitarian principles and is directed toward the most vulnerable populations.

● Early Recovery, Risk Reduction, and Resilience (ER4) activities will set the initial foundations for longer-term recovery as appropriate and will work in close conjunction with humanitarian assistance. Early recovery is an approach that supports communities impacted by crises to protect and restore basic systems and service delivery. Early recovery builds on humanitarian response efforts and establishes the initial foundations of long-term recovery. Early recovery activities are implemented for a specified, appropriate timeframe that assists populations recovering from an identifiable shock. Risk reduction is the prevention of new and reduction of existing disaster risk and management of residual risk, which contributes to strengthening resilience and to the achievement of sustainable development. Resilience is the ability of people, households, communities, countries, and systems to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses in a manner that reduces chronic vulnerability and facilitates inclusive growth.
BHA has seven offices, as follows:

The Bureau’s three geographic offices are: (1) Office of Africa; (2) Office of Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean; and (3) the Office of the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. Each geographic office designs, provides, and assesses humanitarian assistance for their respective regions, including assistance related to responding to, recovering from, and reducing the risk of man-made and natural disasters, while linking with other USAID investments that build resilience.

The Office of Global Policy, Partnerships, Programs, and Communications (G3PC) shapes and influences USAID’s role within the international humanitarian system; leads engagement on a range of policy, programmatic, and operational issues; and positions the Agency to influence collective response to emergency needs across the globe.

The Office of Technical and Program Quality (TPQ) leads the Bureau's efforts to provide high-quality programmatic and technical leadership, oversight, and guidance. In addition, TPQ leads the Bureau’s external engagement with academia and coordinates research to advance the effectiveness, efficiency, and impact of humanitarian and multi-year programming.

The Office of Humanitarian Business and Management Operations (HBMO) is responsible for maintaining 24/7 operability by providing leadership, planning, quality assurance, technical expertise, and process management. HBMO ensures effective stewardship of the Bureau’s support services, including workforce planning, staffing, financial management, internal controls, facilities operations and infrastructure.

The Office of Field and Response Operations (FARO) leads and manages operational assistance and the purchase and delivery of goods and services in response to declared foreign disasters and international humanitarian needs in key functional areas, including supply-chain management, procurement, logistics, oversight, and operational coordination with the U.S. military.

INTRODUCTION

The Support Relief Group (SRG) is a program developed by BHA to satisfy its growing need for surge capacity. In response to numerous disasters worldwide, it became clear that BHA could not find, in a timely manner, adequate staff to cover all positions in the field and in Washington, and to backfill for permanent staff deploying to the field. The SRG program brings on board select candidates who could work on a part-time intermittent basis, for no more than 250 days per calendar year, and who can be deployed within hours to facilitate BHA’s response to disasters, or to backfill staff in Washington and other locations. SRG positions are contracted for five years.

The Field Platform Operations (FPO) Team sits within the Field Operations Division within FARO. The FPO Team coordinates administrative operations and oversees the financial management of BHA’s administrative budgets and procurement activities for its field platforms--which include USAID Missions, U.S. Embassies, and stand-alone offices, as well as U.S. Missions to the United Nations, Department of Defense Combatant Commands, and Disaster Assistance Response Teams (DARTs). It administers entitlements for field staff, as well as for civil-military staff, and ensures consistency in the application of policy across all BHA field platforms. The FPO Team manages a budget of $56 million and oversees the operational and administrative support of about 56 field platforms.

The FPO Team enhances and supports BHA/FARO’s capacity to respond to disasters by serving as the Responsible Unit for the Administrative Coordinator/Officer (AC/AO) positions on DARTs and Response Management Teams (RMTs). DART ACs/AOs liaise and coordinate all administrative matters between USAID Mission and U.S. Embassy staff and DART members, inclusive of local procurements, funds management, human resource actions, hotel reservations, vehicle use, and any other field-based needs that require coordination with mission or embassy management teams. RMT ACs/AOs manage the administrative budget, oversee DART member readiness and deployment, track personnel movement abroad, and coordinate with their DART counterpart to support any administrative requests in-country.

The SRG Field Operations Desk Officers are key facilitators in establishing and maintaining BHA field platforms and positions, in coordination with both Washington, D.C.- and field-based stakeholders. This may involve negotiating service agreements, tracking and facilitating staffing and procurement actions, and liaising with various operating units both within and outside BHA. Desk Officers are the first points of contact for BHA staff posted abroad for a variety of entitlements and provide guidance and support on those actions. In addition, Desk Officers also manage communication with field platforms regarding the annual budget cycle for BHA field platforms and conduct field assessments alongside Field Operations Advisors. Finally, the Desk Officers will play a critical role in BHA’s humanitarian response structure by serving as AC on RMTs and, as developmentally appropriate, DARTs.

OBJECTIVE

The Surge Staffing Team in coordination with the FPO Team requires the services of SRG Field Operations Desk Officers to manage regional portfolios overseeing BHA field platform operations and field staff support, manage annual budget cycle actions for all BHA field platforms, and to serve on responses as part of the AC/AO Cadre to provide essential administrative management for BHA responses.
