USAID/Uganda’s activities are of exceptionally broad scope and complexity. In FY 2010 (FY10), the overall U.S. Government (USG) assistance to Uganda totaled $341M. USAID/Uganda directed $131.5M to mitigate the effects of the 23-year conflict in northern Uganda, integrally linking USG interagency efforts in the areas of HIV/AIDS, infrastructure, defense and diplomacy. The USAID development program contains 68 active assistance awards with a total multi-year portfolio value of $765M. The Mission’s complex and challenging assistance program consists of five action areas: economic growth and biodiversity; health and education; democracy and governance; regional peace and security; and humanitarian assistance. Mission programs implementing the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) are among the largest in the world. The Mission manages one of the largest biodiversity earmarks in Africa and concluded its Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) threshold program in 2009. USAID programs promote the critical U.S. national security goal of a stable Uganda that takes a leadership role in regional peacekeeping, including its operations in Somalia and efforts to end civil conflict in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Mission operates a satellite office at Gulu in northern Uganda that coordinates regional relief and development efforts.

The S/DOC Specialist is an essential and indispensable member of the Office of Program and Policy Development responsible for producing and disseminating public information about mission activities for Ugandan and American consumption and to educate and promote a better understanding of USAID/Uganda programs. In this capacity, the incumbent is responsible for strategically planning, developing, implementing, and administering the DOC program to promote better awareness and understanding of U.S. foreign assistance to Uganda. S/he guides, coordinates, and oversees the mission's communication practices and outreach efforts, helping to ensure that they reflect the U.S. Government's (USG) priorities and promote USAID's accomplishments to key audiences.

The incumbent is responsible for implementing policies and procedures for mission communications that clarify roles and responsibilities within the mission and Embassy and with implementing partners, including templates for various communications tools, setting and monitoring performance/standards for creating and finalizing DOC materials, and guidelines for planning and managing events.

(iii) The position requires excellent writing skills to communicate about USAID programs to a variety of internal and external audiences through a variety of media. Given the wide variety of writing required, the position requires sound judgment in tailoring writing to the specific audience at hand, which may vary greatly to include: the Ambassador, U.S. Congressional staffers, Ugandan public, Ugandan press, technical experts, etc. Such written products include, but are not limited to:

Bring best practices used in other missions and replicate similar ideas for the mission to enhance USAID's public image.

C. POSITION ELEMENTS:

Supervisory Controls: The S/DOC Specialist will report to the Supervisory Program Officer (the Team Leader). Given the professional level of the S/DOC Specialist, supervision is exercised in terms of broadly defined guidance and flexible instructions. The S/DOC Specialist is expected to take self-initiative in planning, executing and determining assignments that provide technically authoritative, expected results.

Available Guidelines: Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM), Foreign Affairs Regulations (FAR), Automated Directives System (ADS), Mission Orders, and Mission Notices. Judgment and ingenuity are required of the incumbent to interpret the intent of policies, directives and guidelines in his/her field of expertise and s/he should have the ability and experience to develop applications and guidelines.

Exercise of Judgment: The incumbent has wide latitude for the exercise of independent judgment to accomplish work of outstanding difficulty and responsibility. Substantial reliance is placed on the incumbent’s use of judgment concerning priority and effectiveness of public relations documentation and activities. Judgment and ingenuity are required not only to interpret the intent of guidance and to develop application/guidelines but also to make quick decisions in settings that require immediate development outreach communication action with crucial implications on U.S. interest and no U.S. senior officials present to consult. Incumbent must react to and interpret changing circumstances in the local and international media and their effects on his/her work schedule and direct colleagues and subordinates to use effective means and skills on rescheduled work.

Authority to Make Commitments: None. Incumbent’s recommendations though will lay basis for making commitments and contribute to policy decisions made by the Mission management team. The incumbent will, however, be required to head activities with no senior officials present that will require his/her expertise and leadership in such events as planning and coordinating partner workshops, donor conferences, project/program Press briefings, and conferences.

Nature, Level and Purposes of Contacts: Personal senior level contacts are with the Mission Director, USAID officials, local professional and international media, U.S. Embassy personnel including the Ambassador, USAID/W Bureaus, staff of implementers and institutional contractors’ Chief of Party, local community leaders, as well as key host country officials and counterparts. Through effective development outreach communication actions, the incumbent must be skillful in determining the appropriate approach in working with senior professional contacts for the purposes of negotiating, persuading and gaining favorable impressions for USG activities, as well as acquiring support and rapport for U.S. projects and progress.

Supervision/Oversight over Others: This position is designated as a supervisory position with oversight of one to two Foreign Service Nationals. Given the highly specialized nature of the work, the incumbent shall provide indirect supervision to USAID employees concerning their work products and activities which intersect with the DOC responsibilities including site or fact sheets, press releases, interview skills, and site preparations.

Information Systems and Information Security: The incumbent is responsible for operating USAID information systems and information security to a level of “Separation of Duties", “Individual Accountability” and “Need to Know” as defined in ADS 545.3.2.1 and also below:

A. Separation of Duties – That an individual does not have the authority to complete an entire process (multiple independent actions), such that each action acts as a "check" on other actions within the process. This "compartmentalizes" the independent actions, and decreases an individual's ability to perform multiple actions or to complete the entire process, which may result in a security breach.

B. Individual Accountability – That an individual is solely responsible for his or her actions. He or she may be required to explain and defend those actions to organizational authorities that can impose penalties against misuse or abuse of authorized actions.

C. Need to Know – That an individual, in the performance of his or her duties, has the requirement to access specific information which would otherwise not be accessible to him or her. He or she must protect the information, using safeguards appropriate to its sensitivity level, to ensure that other individuals who do not have an access requirement or authorization do not access it.

D. QUALIFICATION, EXPERIENCE AND EVALUATION CRITERIA

This position requires a combination of leadership, expertise, analytical, technical, and managerial skills. The incumbent must have excellent writing skills and be able to work under severe time pressures. The incumbent must be familiar with working well in an overseas environment with a wide range of governmental, non governmental counterparts, local, regional, and international press.

The successful applicant must be able to obtain a USAID secret security clearance. She/he must also be able to secure a State Department medical clearance.

Applicants who do not provide evidence that they meet the below qualification requirements shall not be considered. After an initial application screening, the best-qualified applicants will be invited to a testing process, which will include a written exam and oral interview.

The factors are listed in descending order of importance and will be the basis for the evaluation of applications meeting the required minimum qualifications:

Prior Work Experience (30 points):

(1) Five to seven years of successful professional experience with writing and communications that demonstrate skills and hands-on experience in a combination of the following areas: public relations, public information, events planning, editing, publishing, layout, webpage design and maintenance;
