USAID Still Seeks Contractors for Syrian Operations
U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor ^ | Dec. 24, 2012 | Steve Peacock

Private contractors capable of helping the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) prepare for potential future actions in Syria still are being sought by the agency.

USAID's Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) last week extended until Dec. 28 the deadline for Personal Service Contract (PSC) applications for two positions based in Turkey: OTI Country Representative-Syria (Solicitation #SOL-OTI-13-000010) and OTI Deputy Country Representative-Syria (Solicitation #SOL-OTI-13-000011).

USAID in 1994 created OTI:

as a distinct operating unit within USAID to help local partners advance peace and democracy in priority conflict-prone countries. Seizing critical windows of opportunity, OTI works on the ground to provide fast, flexible, short-term assistance targeted at key transition needs.

Both solicitations provided an extensive overview of general OTI goals and functions, but provided few specifics about Syrian activities other than to say the Country Representative, as a member of the:

Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA)/OTI Middle East (ME) Regional Team, reports to the OTI Regional Team Leader, and is based in Turkey. There may be substantial travel to countries in the region if/when conditions allow.

[The] principal responsibility will be development, oversight and management of DCHA/OTI's Syria country program. The incumbent will be called upon to represent OTI's mission and programs to senior-level government officials, in-country visitors, senior officials from other international organizations, bilateral donors and local government officials.

The Deputy Country Representative's principal responsibility simply "is to support the OTI Country Representative in the development, oversight, and management of the DCHA/OTI Syria country program."

The pay range for the Country Representative is $84,697 - $110,104, whereas the deputy slot offers $71,674 - $93,175.

Comment: Those jobs will be filled by junior globalists, probably Soros operatives.
