The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAP World Services Inc. (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position: Senior Supply Chain Advisor, Office of Population and Reproductive Health/ Commodities, Security & Logistics Division, United States Agency for International Development. Commodity security - when clients can access health commodities (pharmaceuticals, medical devices, consumable supplies, etc.) when and where they need them - is an essential component in the provision of health services. Effective supply chain management is one critical determinant of commodity security and the success of health programs. A well-functioning supply chain system increases program impact, enhances quality of care, and improves cost-effectiveness and efficiency. Yet, in many low and middle countries, supply chains are unable to sustainably deliver these benefits. The constraints that they face include ineffective and inefficient system designs and operational procedures, inadequate human and financial resources, and an underlying lack of institutional leadership and support. USAID has long been a leader in helping countries to secure essential supplies for health programs. The mission of the Commodity Security and Logistics (CSL) Division is to ensure for clients the long-term availability of a range of high-quality contraceptives, condoms and other essential health supplies through public and private services. The Senior Supply Chain Advisor will work in CSL, located in the Global Health Bureau's (GH) Office of Population and Reproductive Health (PRH).

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: The responsibilities for the Senior Advisor will be as follows, and will emphasize application of the Advisor's expertise to project management, country support, and global leadership. Project Management: In 2015, GH will launch the Global Health Supply Chain Program (GHSCP), a coordinated architecture of contracts and cooperative agreements implemented by various implementing partners (cooperating agencies). The GHSCP will replace the current USAID | DELIVER PROJECT and Supply Chain Management System and provide commodity procurement and supply chain strengthening support for the U.S. Government's global health programs worldwide. The Senior Supply Chain Advisor will: Provide technical direction and performance monitoring support to GHSCP implementing partners, proactively setting project goals, strategies, and work plans; monitoring work plan implementation. Serve as a key point of influence with USAID Missions, providing technical guidance for the development and implementation of country work plans implemented by GHSCP partners. Develop, advocate, and provide technical leadership for core-funded activities implemented with GHSCP partners. Country Support: Provide technical guidance to USAID Missions and their country partners (ministries, non-governmental organizations, donors, multilateral organizations, etc.) to strengthen supply chain systems for health programs in the public and private sectors, sharing leading practices and lessons learned for the design, implementation, and evaluation of supply chain strengthening activities. The focus will be on PRH priority countries and countries that are priorities for Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths, especially in Sub- Saharan Africa and Asia. Participate in GH country teams to support integration of supply chain strengthening in field programs, working through such processes as program designs and evaluations, and reviews of Mission Performance Plans and Reports and Health Implementation Plans. Support USAID Missions in their short- and long-term objectives for commodity donations, in order to ensure a reliable supply of family planning and related reproductive health products to clients in need. Global Leadership: Serve as a technical authority, staying abreast of and promoting new developments and best practices in area(s) of expertise through peer-reviewed literature, industry trade journals, professional conferences, and other avenues. Develop new and strengthen existing relationships with major donors, multilateral organizations, private foundations, international non-governmental organizations, commercial sector partners, and other international partners for supply chain strengthening.

Support outreach to the next generation of public health and supply chain professionals through, for example, university lectures, career panels at professional conferences, etc. CERTIFICATIONS, LICENSE, PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS OR OTHER EXPERTISE REQUIRED. The contractor must have: Master's degree in supply chain management, industrial engineering, business administration, or closely related discipline, or equivalent professional experience. Minimum ten year's international experience strengthening supply chain systems in low- and middle-income countries, preferably for health programs or comparable private sector experience in supply chain management, e.g., commercial pharmaceutical distribution. Experience in project management and strategic planning. Knowledge of and experience working in the USAID operating environment, including Agency programming and procedures in Washington and in the field.
