Facilitation Expert, USAID/RDMA Supply Chain Resiliency Deep Dive, Remote

Social Impact is a global development management consulting firm. We provide monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. We work across all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. Since 1997 we have worked in over 100 countries for clients such as US government agencies, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and nonprofits.

Project Objective:

Under the Asia Learning, Monitoring and Evaluation (ALME) IDIQ contract, USAID/Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA) has engaged Social Impact under a Task Order Service Request to conduct a “Deep Dive” or assessment that would identify specific findings and recommendations for USAID/RDMA to explore its potential role in strengthening the resilience of Asia-Pacific regional supply chains. The Supply Chain Resiliency Deep Dive will inform activity design and provide data for evidence-based decision making, and identify possible approaches that benefit future USAID RDMA involvement and/or economic growth programming. The impacts and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic will be integrated into report findings. The Supply Chain Resiliency Deep Dive calls for the completion of two interconnected tasks:

  1. An analysis of data and information on priority entry points, including policymaking bodies and private sector networks around vulnerabilities among regional supply chains; and
  2. The co-development of an information dissemination workshop that includes recommendations for programmatic approaches to work with public and private platforms to advance supply chain resiliency at a regional level.

Position Description:

Social Impact is seeking a Facilitation Expert in support of the Supply Chain Resiliency Deep Dive for USAID/RDMA. The Facilitation Expert will facilitate a virtual workshop to present findings and recommendations from the assessment to USAID and other stakeholders. This is a part-time consulting position with a period of performance from September 2021 to January 2022.
