About the Position
Dexis Professional Services is recruiting for a Systems Strengthening, Governance, and Localization Specialist who will be embedded within USAID's Center for Education, Bureau for Development, Democracy and Innovation.
To meet localization targets set by the Administration, the Center for Education is expanding its capacity to support Missions to meet an increasing percentage of assistance going to local partners - while still meeting critically important Sustainable Development Goals related to education and youth. The vast majority of USAID's education funding supports public education systems as the most prevalent and sustainable mechanisms through which to increase access to quality education in many countries around the world. With this position, the Center for Education strives to match the education expertise we bring to our programming with best practices in systems strengthening, governance, and localization. The Specialist will advance these priorities around localization in the education sector through the Education Support Initiative 2 (ESI 2) institutional support contract.
USAID’s Bureau for Development, Democracy and Innovation integrates technical expertise with values-driven, cross-cutting priorities, and modern approaches to the way USAID performs its work. It provides client-centered technical services to USAID’s Missions worldwide, supports programming to innovate, learn, and address emerging issues, and provides technical leadership within the Agency and externally to enhance development impact.
The Bureau’s Center for Education (DDI/EDU) leverages its expertise, partnerships, and global perspective to guide and influence the education sector, advancing U.S. Government development priorities.
All members of DDI are measured on how they foster a climate of respect in interactions with others, value differing perspectives, and treat others in a fair, equitable, and culturally sensitive manner. All members of the Bureau are expected to value diversity, equity, and inclusion in performing everyday duties and responsibilities.
