The purpose of this contract is to establish an employee/employer relationship with the contractor to perform services on a temporary, on-call, basis as part of the SRG.

    1. Date contractor is needed to report to BHA or assignment in the field
    2. Duration of Assignment
    3. Place of Performance

The contractor will notify BHA within 24 hours of availability. At the time the contractor accepts the assignment, he/she is expected to commit for the duration of the assignment. While the contractor will be required to commit to a certain time period, it is understood that the exigencies of a disaster may require the assignment to be extended (not to exceed 250 days). The contractor shall notify BHA at the time of commitment if their existing schedule would preclude an extension. Notification of schedule conflicts shall not necessarily disqualify the contractor from the assignment but will simply assist BHA in recruiting a replacement. Subsequently, if the contractor agrees to an extension of the duration of a particular assignment, thereafter, the contractor will be required to give BHA 10 days’ notice for release from the assignment.

  2. ELIGIBLE OFFERORS: U.S. Citizens

  4. STATEMENT OF DUTIES BACKGROUND

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) is responsible for facilitating and coordinating U.S. Government (USG) humanitarian assistance overseas in response to all types of international disasters, including slow- onset disasters such as droughts or famine, natural disasters such as earthquakes or floods, or man- made disasters such as conflict or war. BHA is responsible for planning, coordinating, developing, achieving, monitoring, and evaluating international humanitarian assistance falling into two conceptual areas:

  • Humanitarian Response activities comprise needs-based humanitarian assistance provided to save lives, alleviate suffering, and protect human dignity during and in the aftermath of emergencies. Humanitarian assistance is grounded in humanitarian principles and is directed toward the most vulnerable populations.
  • Early Recovery, Risk Reduction, and Resilience (ER4) activities will set the initial foundations for longer-term recovery as appropriate, and will work in close conjunction with humanitarian assistance. Early recovery is an approach that supports communities impacted by crises to protect and restore basic systems and service delivery. Early recovery builds on humanitarian response efforts and establishes the initial foundations of long-term recovery. Early recovery activities are implemented for a specified, appropriate timeframe that assists populations recovering from an identifiable shock. Risk reduction is the prevention of new and reduction of existing disaster risk and management of residual risk, which contributes to strengthening resilience and to the achievement of sustainable development. Resilience is the ability of people, households, communities, countries, and systems to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses in a manner that reduces chronic vulnerability and facilitates inclusive growth.

BHA has seven offices, as follows:

The Bureau’s three geographic offices are: (1) Office of Africa; (2) Office of Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean; and (3) the Office of the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. Each geographic office designs, provides, and assesses humanitarian assistance for their respective regions, including assistance related to responding to, recovering from, and reducing the risk of man-made and natural disasters, while linking with other USAID investments that build resilience.

The Office of Global Policy, Partnerships, Programs, and Communications (G3PC) shapes and influences USAID’s role within the international humanitarian system; leads engagement on a range of policy, programmatic, and operational issues; and positions the Agency to influence collective response to emergency needs across the globe.

The Office of Technical and Program Quality (TPQ) leads the Bureau's efforts to provide high- quality programmatic and technical leadership, oversight, and guidance. In addition, TPQ leads the Bureau’s external engagement with academia and coordinates research to advance the effectiveness, efficiency, and impact of humanitarian and multi-year programming.

The Office of Humanitarian Business and Management Operations (HBMO) is responsible for maintaining 24/7 operability by providing leadership, planning, quality assurance, technical expertise, and process management. HBMO ensures effective stewardship of the Bureau’s support services, including workforce planning, staffing, financial management, internal controls, facilities operations and infrastructure.

The Office of Field and Response Operations (FARO) leads and manages operational assistance and the purchase and delivery of goods and services in response to declared foreign disasters and international humanitarian needs in key functional areas, including supply-chain management, procurement, logistics, oversight, and operational coordination with the U.S. military.

INTRODUCTION

The Support Relief Group (SRG) is a program developed by BHA to satisfy its growing need for surge capacity. The primary roles of SRG contractors include intermittent backfill for permanent staff overseas, covering vacancies domestically, and responding to numerous disasters worldwide in a timely manner. Currently, about half of all SRG activations are domestic and half are overseas in various capacities.

The SRG program brings on board select candidates who work for discrete periods, on an intermittent basis for no more than 250 days per calendar year, and can be deployed within hours to facilitate BHA’s response to disasters, or to backfill staff in Washington and other locations. SRG staff can be used for as little as a day or up to several months at a time. SRG positions are contracted for an initial period of one year with the option to extend up to five years.

The SRG program is managed by the Surge Staffing Team in the Response Resources Division. This team maintains information for all SRG personnel, providing information to the rest of BHA on their availability, skills and previous BHA experience. Surge Staffing Team assists the program offices within BHA in choosing the best qualified SRG for any specific task, and provides administrative and personnel support to existing SRG. Each SRG incumbent will provide enhancement to the BHA team according to his/her skills. They will be considered part of BHA/Washington resources that can be deployed worldwide.

The Field Platform Operations Team sits within the Field Operations Division within FARO. The Field Platform Operations Team oversees the financial management of BHA’s administrative budgets and procurement activities for its field offices, coordinates administrative operations and ensures consistency in the application of policy across all BHA field offices. It administers entitlements for field staff, as well as for civil-military staff. The Field Platform Operations Team manages a budget of $56 million and oversees the operational and administrative support of about 56 field offices.

The Field Platform Operations Team enhances and supports BHA/FARO’s capacity to respond to disasters by serving as the Responsible Unit for the Administrative Coordinator/Officer (AC/AO) positions on Disaster Assistance Response Teams (DARTs) and Response Management Teams (RMTs). DART ACs/AOs liaise and coordinate all administrative matters between USAID Mission and U.S. Embassy staff and DART members, inclusive of local procurements, funds management, human resource actions, hotel reservations, vehicle use, and any other field-based needs that require coordination with mission or embassy management teams. RMT ACs/AOs manage the administrative budget, oversee DART member readiness and deployment, track personnel movement abroad, and coordinate with their DART counterpart to support any administrative requests in-country.

The SRG Response and Systems Officers will play a critical role in BHA’s response efforts by activating as ACs/AOs and/or advising/mentoring activated ACs/AOs. It will also play a critical role by supporting the AC Responsible Unit in staffing, strategy, and cross-bureau engagements, developing and leading AC/AO trainings, and building out AC Responsible Unit operational systems and processes.

The SRG Response and Systems Officers will also fill a crucial role on the Field Platform Operations Team by establishing and maintaining processes and resources that enable consistency of support, enhance the team’s internal control mechanisms, and provide essential operational management, administrative, and budgetary support to BHA field operations at USAID Missions and U.S. Embassies worldwide.

The SRG Response and Systems Officers will help develop the skills and knowledge of Field Platform Operations Team staff and ACs/AOs on DARTs and RMTs via the development and implementation of toolkits, onboarding materials, and additional resources.

OBJECTIVE

The Field Platform Operations Team requires the services of SRG Response and Systems Officers to develop systems, trainings, and processes to enhance the internal controls of the Field Platform Operations Team; to develop systems, resources, and trainings for sourcing, developing, and supporting the AC/AO Cadre; and to serve on responses as part of the AC/AO Cadre to provide essential administrative management for BHA responses.
