Title: Costing Advisor
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 Costing Advisor 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.
The Costing Advisor position plays a vital role in the Division, providing support in advancing the EA Branch agenda by performing a variety of both routine and complex program efficiency and financial analysis-related activities, including resource tracking, budgeting, costing, cost modeling, and cost-effectiveness analysis to advance OHA’s vision for the use of financial information for strategic decision-making in collaboration with headquarters (HQ) and country teams. The Costing Advisor provides support to headquarters and field Mission staff, performing a variety of both complex and routine data analyses, to strengthen program efficiency and accountability, through the triangulation of financial data with other programmatic data streams. Additionally, the Costing Advisor provides technical support to PEPFAR-implementing countries to report, collect and interpret financial data as it influences programmatic performance and the budgeting process, supports Agency programs, and assists countries to efficiently achieve their HIV targets and reach epidemic control.
