PSes will be based in all NLCB offices, initially Abuja, Maiduguri, and Damaturu, 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.

The PS is responsible for ensuring transparency throughout the procurement process, maintaining the complete documentation and filing system for all procurements including quotations/proposals, evaluations of quotations/proposals, negotiation memorandums, award documents, correspondence with vendors, and activity inventory as required by USAID regulations and CAMRIS policies and procedures. The PS is required to 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.
