USPSC Support Relief Group Senior Humanitarian Advisor (Multiple Positions)
USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)
About the organization
The Support Relief Group (SRG) is a program developed by BHA to satisfy its growing need for surge capacity. The primary roles of SRG contractors include intermittent backfill for permanent staff to cover vacancies domestically or in overseas offices, and to respond to numerous disasters worldwide in a timely manner. Currently, about half of all SRG activations are domestic and half overseas in various capacities.
The SRG program brings on board select candidates who work on an intermittent basis for no more than 250 days per calendar year and can be deployed within hours to facilitate BHA’s response to disasters, or to backfill staff in Washington and other locations. SRG staff can be used for as little as a day or up to several months at a time. SRG positions are contracted for an initial period of one year with four one-year options. The SRG program is managed by the Response Resources Division (R2D) in the Field and Response Operations (FARO) Office.
