The resultant contract shall be a Personal Services Contract (PSC). See PL 109-149, Section 215(1), Reference 22U.S.C.2669(c). SOLICITATION NUMBER: 2008-N-10725 POSITION NUMBER: AO-PSC-01 ISSUANCE DATE: August 22, 2008, 2008 CLOSING DATE/TIME: September 9, 2008 at 3:00PM Eastern Standard Time POSITION TITLE: Strategic Information Advisor/Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist BASIC SALARY: $51,095 to $88,015 per year -- Final compensation will be based on individual salary history, work experience, and educational background. PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE: One Base Year and Four Option Years PLACE OF PERFORMANCE: Luanda, Angola SECURITY CLEARANCE: NACI (Non-sensitive) AREA OF CONSIDERATION: United States Citizens and residents and third country nationals. Citizens and permanent residents of the host country are not eligible for this position. Duties and Responsibilities: Major Duties of this position include: The incumbent Strategic Information (SI) Advisor with expertise in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) provides in-country assistance to establish and implement standardized program evaluation, and reporting for HIV/AIDS activities for both USG team and other key partners. Incumbent is responsible for strengthening M&E systems and capacity among United States Government (USG) agencies (CDC, USAID, DOD, DOS), partners, and the Government of Angola (GOA) at both implementer and national levels. Incumbent also is responsible for developing and managing systems to measure the progress towards targets set for the USG President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and its contribution to the national response to HIV/AIDS in Angola. The Strategic Information Advisor advises the USG team on all matters related to the measurement of USG's contribution toward achieving the PEPFAR targets. Incumbent is responsible for translating M&E and other Strategic Information (SI) into improved Emergency Plan (EP) programming and delivery of services. Additionally, incumbent strengthens systems of accountability for use of EP resources, contributes to a single national M&E system in Angola, and strengthens systems and capacity among partners to collect, manage, and use quality M&E data. Incumbent also facilitates the work of SI Team members in country (Surveillance, M&E, and Health Monitoring and Information Systems (HMIS, EPI Data Manager,) to ensure SI/M&E requirements of the EP are met on a timely basis (e.g., target setting for the Country Operational Plan [COP]; activity development for SI program areas of the COP, semi-annual progress report, etc.). Incumbent coordinates responses to ad hoc SI requests from the Office of the United States Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC), the USG team in-country and CDC/Atlanta. Incumbent works closely with CDC/GAP/Angola, USAID/Angola, the Angolan National Institute of Public Health (INSP in Portuguese), the Angolan National Institute to Fight HIV/AIDS (INLS in Portuguese), Global Fund Angola, WHO Angola, etc. and the Brazilian south-to-south collaboration, to establish and implement standardized program management, evaluation and reporting practices for HIV/AIDS activities in Angola. Responsibilities: Incumbent is closely involved with the development of the annual Country Operational Plan (COP). As such, s/he has an opportunity to contribute to long-term strategic planning for CDC/GAP Angola and PEPFAR. This plan will include provisions for staffing six positions: Team Leader; HIV/AIDS Specialist; Surveillance Officer; Data Manager; Project Officer. The M&E Officer will be expected to provide input on staffing for results requirements in the Strategic Information sector. This may include suggestions on increased staffing in the sector or recommendations on expanding the roles and responsibilities of existing M&E staff. This position supervises two staff members: 1) Surveillance Specialist 2) Epi Data Manager Incumbent manages four people involved in the execution of CDC and Emergency Plan-funded Strategic Information activities. This management does not constitute formal supervision of staff employed by partner organizations or others. Rather, as the focal point for the collection of CDC and Emergency Plan-mandated data, the incumbent will be responsible for ensuring that people employed by partners receiving CDC or Emergency Plan funds are aware of reporting deadlines and guidelines for submitting data. As above, incumbent is responsible for ensuring that two contractors employed by partner organizations or USG agencies in country are aware of reporting deadlines and guidelines for submitting data. Incumbent is required to provide relevant training in CDC and Emergency Plan reporting guidelines, requirements and regulations to 15 staff members at partner organizations. Training will also be provided on methods used in the collection and use of Strategic Information (M&E, surveillance data). This training may also be provided to new staff at USG agencies, as needed. As the focal point for the collection and dissemination of Strategic Information data for CDC/USG and Emergency Plan reports, the incumbent serves as a team leader during periods preceding reporting deadlines. As the team leader, incumbent is expected to communicate daily with 15 partner organizations' staff members and other USG agencies to ensure that all required data are submitted and processed in a timely manner. The incumbent will be provided with all of the equipment necessary to perform the duties outlined in this position description. This will include, but not be limited to, a personal computer (PC) with all relevant software and hardware installed (e.g., MS Office, Ethernet connection), connection to a broadband internet server, access to the CDC/GAP intranet, access to the CDC Citrix server, a fax machine, a photocopier, digital scanner, a desk and an ergonomic desk chair. The equipment described in this section will be used in the execution of the incumbent's official duties. Estimated value US$5,000 All expendable supplies will be provided by the CDC/GAP Angola office. The incumbent may request additional expendable supplies, as needed, through the CDC/GAP Angola administrative assistant. Estimated value of supplies US$5,000 annually. Incumbent is responsible for maintaining print and electronic archives on Strategic Information activities (reporting indicators, surveillance data, etc.) each year. The M&E officer will also maintain files on relevant Health Management Information Systems (HMIS), surveillance, and Monitoring and Evaluation Resource Group (MERG) activities. These data will be filed in a manner that information can be accessed quickly and easily on any given indicator or for any partner. The CDC/GAP Angola Chief of Party exercises overall supervisory control over the development of incumbent's annual workplan. The execution of the annual workplan (i.e., the incumbent's daily work) is supervised by the CDC/GAP Angola Chief of Party; however, incumbent has significant independence to execute the duties described in this position description. This independence includes the freedom to liaise (communicate regularly) with partners and other USG agencies without prior consent from the supervisor. As the resident expert in Strategic Information activities and the USG guidelines governing these activities, incumbent also has considerable freedom to make decisions related to the collection, compilation, and analysis of required indicator data. Incumbent also is free to veto the actions of others when those actions would contradict or run counter to established guidelines governing the collection, compilation, analysis and/or dissemination of these data. Incumbent has broad discretion to resolve problems/situations encountered in conjunction with the duties described for this position. Examples of this discretion may include: 1. Providing direct technical support to partners on issues related to the collection and/or transmission of Strategic Information (indicators, surveillance data). This support may include (but not be limited to) training on data collection guidelines, use of data collection forms and, where relevant, electronic data collection/ management systems (e.g., COPRS, HMIS). Incumbent also provides technical training to partners on the need for M&E and other Strategic Information activities and the use of data collected through these activities. 2. Providing or obtaining clarification on the meaning of indicators. This may include determining and communicating the intent of individual reporting indicators. Incumbent is expected to make these determinations in conjunction with senior M&E colleagues at CDC/Atlanta and/or the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator. Works with partners, including the Ministry of Health, to explain and ensure compliance with CDC clearance requirements for evaluations and operational research projects. 3. Incumbent works with partners to establish or facilitate an alternate reporting mechanism. For instance, if a partner is unable to file data electronically, incumbent assists the partner to file those data via an alternative method (e.g., telephone, fax). When data is received in a non-electronic manner, incumbent is responsible for ensuring the data are appropriately loaded into the electronic system. Incumbent is not required to control the overall management and/or implementation of projects. Rather, incumbent's principal responsibilities focuses on overseeing and facilitating partners' implementation of Strategic Information activities described in the annual Country Operations Plan. Incumbent's responsibilities are focused on ensuring each project and partner complies with the reporting requirements outlined in their CDC or PEPFAR funding agreement. Incumbent also asserts control over the development and implementation of Strategic Information (M&E, surveillance) training activities with partners and responds to requests for technical assistance. Incumbent's overall impact is on the Country Operation Plan for the country. The total country PEPFAR budget is US$7,000,000.00. Incumbent provides oversight of six USG member technical support persons to various projects/programs undertaken by PEPFAR and, when necessary, solicits appropriate human and financial resources. Incumbent leads the inter-agency SI team consisting of SI staff across USG agencies. The SI section includes activities funded in Surveillance and Surveys to monitor the epidemic and risk behaviors; Health Management Information Systems, primarily for Government of Angola HIV programs; and Monitoring and Evaluation for support of PEPFAR and its partners. The team conducts strategic planning in collaboration with the Government of Angola and international donors to ensure that PEPFAR SI works in harmony with these partners. As a member of the CDC/GAP Angola program's technical staff, incumbent provides input to the program's annual Country Operational Plan (COP) on questions related to Strategic Information (monitoring and evaluation and associated data collection and reporting activities, e.g., surveillance). Since Strategic Information is an evolving field, it may reasonably be expected that incumbent will be asked to contribute to and implement new developments in policies and procedures related to M&E and surveillance. Because of the importance of reporting in all CDC and PEPFAR activities, these changes will impact the overall operations of CDC/Angola's programs and those of the agency's partners. As noted elsewhere, incumbent is the primary point of contact for all CDC and PEPFAR funded partners for questions involving the collection and dissemination of Strategic Information data (including, but not limited to, required indicators, surveillance). Incumbent provides specific and relevant advice and recommendations to others inside and outside of the CDC/GAP Angola office. This advice will include information on changes to reporting requirements, updates on reporting guidelines, and assistance to partners experiencing technical difficulties collecting or transmitting required data. Incumbent also coordinates technical assistance from CDC headquarters in response to requests for such assistance from partners. Incumbent provides regular progress reports to the CDC/GAP/Angola/Director/Chief of Party. These progress reports -- on partner activities -- allow the director to assess the overall direction of CDC and PEPFAR activities in Angola and to make changes to the strategic plan, as necessary. Without these progress reports, the program would be unable to identify problems and institute mid-course corrections. The frequency of these reports will be determined by incumbent's supervisor. Incumbent provides a mission critical link among CDC and PEPFAR-funded partners and the U.S. Government. Incumbent's importance may best be expressed by indicating what would happen in the absence of this position: Funding to partners is incumbent on the partners' meeting pre-determined reporting requirements and deadlines. Without incumbent to oversee the timely and appropriate collection and dissemination of these data, partners would risk losing funding from CDC and/or PEPFAR. More importantly, gaps in the collection of Strategic Information data would prevent the USG from evaluating the impact of PEPFAR funds and identifying areas where policy or programmatic changes may be required. Knowledge: Essential All applicants should have demonstrable professional experience with monitoring and evaluation or a related field of data collection and dissemination (e.g., surveillance). Extensive knowledge of the principles, concepts, methods and techniques of public health to analyze, evaluate and provide expert advice and consultation to the PEPFAR office; strong knowledge of the methods, applications, and state-of-the art technology to provide direction and guidance on critical and complex issues for the country team. A master's degree in a related field (e.g., public health, development) is required. This educational requirement may be waived for candidates possessing at least five years of senior level professional experience in monitoring and evaluation and surveillance. Candidates meeting the minimum educational requirement must have at least one year of professional experience in monitoring and evaluation or other public health program management. Candidates who do not meet the minimum educational requirement must have five years of professional experience in monitoring and evaluation and surveillance. Level 5 fluency in English (written and spoken) is required. All candidates must be proficient in the Microsoft Office suite of programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Qualified applicants for this position will be expected to perform the full range of duties and responsibilities within one month after entering the position. Desired Knowledge of CDC and USG operations and regulations is beneficial, but not required. All applicants must, however, be familiar with the overall goals and objectives of the CDC, the Global AIDS Program and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. A working knowledge of Angola's geography and post-independence history is desired. Level 3 fluency in Portuguese (written and spoken) is desirable. Familiarity with statistical software (e.g., SAS, SPSS) is desired but not required. Intellectual Skills: Incumbent works in a highly detailed and complex information environment. As the focal point for Strategic Information data from CDC and PEPFAR partners, incumbent is required to understand and apply all CDC and PEPFAR data collection and reporting guidelines. Incumbent also must have strong knowledge, skills and abilities in the field of epidemiological surveillance (especially as it applies to HIV/AIDS). Please note that reporting guidelines are updated on a routine basis. Incumbent is expected to keep up with changes in the reporting guidelines and communicate these changes to partners, as needed. Likewise, incumbent is expected to stay current with developments in the field of surveillance. Incumbent is expected to perform complex analyses of data submitted by CDC and PEPFAR partners in Angola. These analyses are quantitative and qualitative in nature, as required for the annual and semi-annual reports, the Country Operational Plan (COP) and evaluations and operational research. Incumbent is required to adapt to changing guidelines for processing these data, and communicate these changes in a clear and timely manner to affected partners. Typical problems incumbent will face and be required to solve include: Partners that do not understand reporting requirements; unclear reporting requirements that require clarification by incumbent. The most difficult problems incumbent will face will involve partners who encounter difficulties collecting or filing data by a reporting deadline. In these situations, incumbent is expected to work quickly and accurately under significant time constraints. As noted elsewhere, incumbent contributes to the development of the Country Operational Plan (COP), an annual document that outlines the program goals and objectives for the fiscal year. Incumbent contributes to COP sections involving monitoring and evaluation activities. Incumbent also advises the CDC/GAP Angola country director (and other senior CDC/Atlanta/USG technical staff) on monitoring and evaluation issues as they may pertain to the development of long-term strategic planning documents. The Strategic Information field is relatively young and is constantly evolving. Incumbent is expected to keep abreast of new developments and innovations in the field. S/he also is expected to contribute new ideas, when appropriate, and adapt new techniques and ideas as required by CDC and/or PEPFAR. Communications: Given the small size of the CDC/GAP Angola office, incumbent will have direct internal contact with all members of the program, from the country director to the janitorial staff. The nature of communications will vary depending on the conversation, but will range from routine administrative contacts to high level conversations about programs and data. Incumbent is expected to approach key internal contacts (chief of party, deputy director for operations) and communicate mission critical information to them in a timely and clear manner. On occasion, incumbent also is expected to communicate mission critical information in person to country directors for other USG agencies, as well as senior staff at the U.S. Embassy. As the key point of contact for Strategic Information, incumbent must maintain constant contact with external partners and serve as CDC technical liaison on relevant panels and committees (e.g., the Monitoring and Evaluation Resource Group). These contacts include communication with high- and mid-level representatives of partner organizations, pertaining to the sharing of information on guidelines for monitoring and evaluation, support for the collection and submission of required indicator data, and oversight of evaluations and operational research supported by PEPFAR. As noted above, incumbent must be able to communicate highly technical information to senior staff in the USG team as well as with partner organizations. Complex explanations must be presented clearly and concisely, and incumbent must be able to restate the same information from different angles. This ability may be essential for partners who do not grasp the initial explanation of a new and complex set of guidelines or data. Incumbent also, on occasion, is required to convey the policies, practices, and accomplishments of CDC/GAP Angola and PEPFAR in public appearances (e.g., conferences). As the team leader for data collection and reporting, Incumbent also is required to mediate between partners and CDC HQ and the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator on differences of opinion regarding monitoring and evaluation practices or protocols. Tact, diplomacy and patience are required in these situations. Incumbent must be able to communicate in writing at the highest level. Written work includes contributions to the annual Country Operational Plan, annual and semi-annual reports, as well as training materials and articles for publication, as assigned by incumbent's supervisor. Incumbent also is expected to produce high-level presentation slides, including information collected during the most recent reporting cycle. These presentations must be of sufficient quality to be viewed by senior members of the U.S. mission in Angola, senior leadership at CDC/GAP headquarters in Atlanta, senior staff at the Departments of State and Health and Human Services in Washington, DC, as well as by audiences at domestic and international conferences. Working Environment: Primary Location: Luanda, Angola. Incumbent may be required to travel within Angola to perform site visits to partner organizations funded by CDC and/PEPFAR. Angola is a developing country with poor ground transportation networks (especially in the interior where travel requires four-wheel-drive vehicles) and a weak internal air network. Hazards associated with domestic ground or air transportation will be similar to those found in other developing countries. This position is largely sedentary, requiring long hours seated in an office environment while working on a PC. Physical demands will be minimal. Incumbent will be informed of the risk of repetitive strain injuries due to excessive typing and will be advised of ways to minimize this risk. Incumbent also is expected to absorb any physical discomfort associated with travel to the interior of Angola. This may include long periods in a four-wheel-drive vehicle on unpaved roads, flights on small charter aircraft and river trips on open boats, etc. The majority of the work associated with this position will be done in Angola's capital city, Luanda. Some travel -- with unusual work patterns and work away from the primary duty station -- may be required throughout the course of each year. Benefits/Allowances: Overseas allowances and differentials similar to those available to U.S. Government employees assigned abroad may be payable under this PSC, subject to eligibility. Actual benefits may vary from one candidate to the next and/or from one country of assignment to the next. A summary of the overseas allowances and differentials available to U.S. Government employees assigned abroad may be found at the following Internet URL: http://aoprals.state.gov/ Specific benefit, allowance, and differential information will be provided in the "Offer of PSC Employment" letter sent to the successful applicant. Additionally, country specific information useful for U.S. Government employees assigned abroad may be obtained from Department of State available at the following Internet URL: http://www.state.gov/m/fsi/tc/c10391.htm and Travel Warnings concerning certain countries, in many of which CDC conducts its international program activities, may be obtained at the following Internet URL: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/tw/tw_1764.html. Federal Taxes: Personal Service Contractors who are either United States citizens or Permanent Resident Aliens (i.e., "green card" holders) of the United States are not exempt from payment of Federal Income and, in some cases State, income taxes on salaries earned abroad while working for the U.S. Government. CONTRACTOR-MISSION RELATIONSHIPS (a) The contractor acknowledges that this contract is an important part of the U.S. Foreign Assistance Program and agrees that his/her duties will be carried out in such a manner as to be fully commensurate with the responsibilities that this entails. (b) While in the Cooperating Country, the contractor is expected to show respect for the conventions, customs, and institutions of the Cooperating Country and not interfere in its political affairs. (c) If the contractor's conduct is not in accordance with paragraph (b) of this provision, the contract may be unilaterally terminated by the Contracting Officer. The Contractor recognizes the right of the U.S. Ambassador to direct his/her immediate removal from any country when, in the discretion of the Ambassador, the interests of the United States so require. (d) The Country Director is the chief representative of CDC in the Cooperating Country. In this capacity, he/she is responsible for the total CDC Program in the Cooperating Country including certain administrative responsibilities set forth in this contract and for advising CDC regarding the performance of the work under the contract and its effect on the U.S. Foreign Assistance Program. The contractor will be responsible for performing his/her duties in accordance with the statement of duties called for by the contract. However, he/she shall be under the general policy guidance of the Country Director, and shall keep the Country Director or his/her designated representative currently informed of the progress of the work under this contract.

(b) As an employee, the contractor is not eligible for the 'foreign earned income' exclusion under the IRS Regulations (see 26 CFR 1.911- 3(c)(3)). INSURANCE (a) Worker's Compensation Benefits. The contractor shall be provided worker's compensation benefits in accordance with the Federal Employees' Compensation Act. (b) Health and Life Insurance.

In such case, the contractor would be eligible for contributions under paragraphs (b)(1) or (2) as appropriate. (4) Proof of health and life insurance coverage shall be submitted to the Contracting Officer before any contribution is paid. On assignments of less than one year, costs for health and life insurance shall be prorated and paid accordingly.

MEDEVAC INSURANCE (NON U.S. CITIZENS ONLY) Non U.S. citizens will not qualify for health unit access during the period of performance of the resultant contract and, if a contract is offered, will be responsible for obtaining required medical evacuation (medevac) insurance. CDC shall reimburse 100% of the cost of medevac insurance maintained by the contractor. CDC does not require that contractor obtains coverage from any one specific company. The contractor is responsible for and has the discretion to choose a provider. For information purposes only: The Department of State maintains a list of U.S. based providers on the following website: http://travel.state.gov/travel/tips/health/health_1185.html. CDC provides no endorsement, expressly or implied, of any emergency medical service provider. Contractors have full discretion to consider providers not provided in this list, but are expected to verify that the coverage they do obtain will adequately cover an evacuation due to a medical situation that arises in the location of contract performance. CDC shall approve a fair and reasonable amount for obtaining the required coverage as a direct cost to the contract. In order for CDC to reimburse the cost of medevac insurance, CDC shall require the contractor to furnish evidence of obtaining medevac insurance for the employee and all accompanying family members on U.S. Government travel orders and its cost, after issuance of an offer letter.
