|Job type||Full Time|
The International Development Division focuses on improving the lives and economic well-being of people in lower and middle-income countries. We command technical expertise in health, agriculture, climate change, food security and governance-as well as in international evaluation. Our multi-layered health portfolio includes policy, health promotion and disease prevention, health finance, and health systems management. In partnership with government clients and local experts, our high-quality programs in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East are known for impact and innovation.
The USAID Next Generation Global Health Supply Chain (NextGen GHSC) suite of programs is expected to build on gains to date in achieving stronger, more resilient health supply chains for health commodities in developing countries. Within this family of Indefinite Quantity Contracts (IQC), the Supply Chain Technical Assistance project will provide a comprehensive array of services to improve operational excellence in supply chain performance, while supporting countries on their journeys to self-reliance to meet the needs of tomorrow's populations. Task order issued under this IQC will support a range of activities including, but not limited to, improvements in warehousing, distribution, quantification, forecasting, procurement, transportation, and information systems with the mandate to achieve country-led and managed supply chain systems. The task orders will also provide support to refocus the role of country governments from supply chain operators to stewards of product availability and security. This includes leveraging the broader landscape of country capacities, including increased use of private sector, to improve supply chain performance and client experience.
The Technical Project Director will play a key role in winning and managing task orders under the NextGen IQC, while leading efforts to grow this technical area within Abt's International Development Division (IDD). The Director will work with other Abt technical specialists to develop solutions to supply chain performance challenges, using both proven and innovative approaches adapted to the developing country context. The Technical Project Director will also be responsible for growing Abt's supply chain portfolio of programs, identifying business development opportunities, and leading the submission of responses to donor solicitations, including RFPs for task orders issued under the USAID NextGen Global Health Supply Chain IQC. This position is contingent upon IQC award to Abt Associates.
