****************************** SENIOR SUPPLY CHAIN ADVISOR WASHINGTON, DC
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). The successful candidate for this position will have broad knowledge of supply chain management and the design and evaluation of supply chain systems in low- and middle-income countries, and specialized expertise in one or more specific supply chain functions such as (but not limited to) procurement, warehousing, and/or transport.

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.

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.
