****************************** *COUNTRY REPRESENTATIVE TANZANIA
The International Training and Education Center for Health is seeking a Country Representative in Tanzania. The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) is a global network that works with local partners to develop skilled health care workers and strong national health systems in resource-limited countries. I-TECH promotes local ownership to sustain effective health systems. I-TECH envisions a world in which all people have access to high quality, compassionate, and equitable health care. I-TECH is a global health program of the University of Washington (UW) Department of Global Health in Seattle, in partnership with the University of California - San Francisco. I-TECH operates programs and employs staff in multiple countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean Region. I-TECH, as a center within the UW Department of Global Health (DGH), acts as the administrative home for numerous sponsored projects and has received delegated authority from the department to maintain policies and procedures that protect the interests of its faculty/ Principal Investigators (PIs) and the University. A key objective for I-TECH is to assure that PIs working through the I-TECH network and country programs have the authority and support they need to assure that their work is carried out as they direct, in a timely manner and compliant with UW and sponsor policies. In Tanzania, I-TECH is one of the implementing partners for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Global AIDS Program (CDC GAP). At the invitation of CDC, I-TECH is collaborating with international stakeholders to support the scale-up of training programs and clinical services for HIV in Tanzania. The I-TECH Country Representative, with support from the Seattle Headquarters Team Lead and other HQ staff, is responsible for ensuring the fulfilment and administration of project activities in Tanzania. The Country Representative is accountable directly to the PIs for carrying out the activities of the awards in Tanzania, and to the I-TECH Managing Director for assuring compliance with human resources (HR), legal, and financial management. The Managing Director is accountable to the Chair and to PIs to ensure that I-TECH effectively supports project implementation and compliance with accepted grants management practices. This dual accountability assures that PIs are able to control the quality and cost effective implementation of work for which they are ultimately accountable, and that I-TECH is accountable to PIs and to UW and its governing bodies (i.e., UWorld boards) for maintenance of past, present, and future assets in a long-term sustainable infrastructure. In summary, the I-TECH Country Representative is accountable programmatically to those PIs whose work they are responsible for carrying out in that country. PIs have the final word on how the work is carried out. In addition to the responsibilities of a PI, the I-TECH Managing Director is responsible for assuring compliance with the human resources, legal and financial mechanisms that allow work to be carried out in a compliant way. In countries where there are multiple PIs, this position is accountable to each of them for a particular scope of work.
