The PSCM is responsible for ensuring that all procurements comply with CAMRIS’ policies and procedures and USAID’s Automated Directives System (ADS) and Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR), the US government’s Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and the regulations which apply to NLCB activities and awards. This includes directly managing and overseeing all aspects of the procurement process and the procurement team including solicitation of quotations, evaluation of tenders and bids, pre-qualification of suppliers. The PSCM will ensure all procurement is done in a transparent manner, that files are created and kept up to date, and will support the SOM/DCOP to develop systems to prevent corruption, influence peddling, and conflict of interest. In addition, the Procurement Manager is responsible for establishing, maintaining, and updating the inventory for all non-expendable property procured for activities until items are approved by USAID’s contracting officer for disposition. This position will be based in the Maiduguri office and activities will be carried out in targeted areas and communities across northeastern Nigeria as well as in communities along Nigeria’s borders and may extend into neighboring LCB countries. Extensive and frequent travel throughout the northeast is expected and required.
