Title: Program Analyst
Application Deadline: Open until Filled
The U.S. Government’s (USG) engagement to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS is a top priority worldwide. The USG response includes coordination among the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Peace Corps (PC), and other entities. This initiative is collectively known as the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). USAID has been at the forefront of the USG’s response to provide quality HIV/AIDS services to over one hundred countries to mitigate the health crisis that threatens the prosperity, stability and development of these nations.
The Bureau for Global Health’s Office of HIV/AIDS (GH/OHA) is the center of HIV/AIDS technical leadership for USAID and has primary responsibility for the Agency’s HIV/AIDS program. OHA provides strategic direction, technical leadership, and support to field programs in HIV/AIDS. It provides input to decisions concerning the strategic allocation of financial and human resources in the sector and assists in designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating programs.
The Strategic Information, Evaluation, and Informatics Division (SIEI) within OHA, to which the Program Analyst will be assigned, provides technical expertise to advance and support country-owned, sustainable strategic information systems and promotes data-driven program planning. The SIEI Division has primary responsibility of supporting USAID headquarters and its Missions to build capacity in managing and utilizing data systems to improve impact and accountability of HIV/AIDS programs.
The Expenditure Analysis (EA) Branch, located within SIEI, provides global technical leadership to advance the collection, analysis, and use of financial data for increasing transparency, efficiency and accountability across programs to achieve the greatest impact in the HIV/AIDS response. The Branch supports USAID Headquarters, Missions and inter-agency field teams by building capacity for financial data collection, analysis and application for strategic program planning, budgeting and management.
Within the EA Branch, the Program Analyst (the Analyst) provides support to technical staff, performing a variety of both complex and routine administrative and analytical duties.

The Analyst works closely with the assigned team and provides input on related technical issues. The Analyst also works with other members of the team to assist in areas such as capacity building, country backstopping, overall administrative support and other duties. The Analyst ranks tasks in order of importance and impending deadlines, and handles several tasks simultaneously. The individual is expected to become familiar with Office/Division technical issues and policies and must develop a working knowledge of USAID policies and guidelines, as well as corporate practices and procedures. To perform this job successfully, an individual must be able to perform each essential duty satisfactorily. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.
