USPSC Support Relief Group (SRG) Field Operations Advisor/Senior Advisor

USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)

About the organization

INTRODUCTION

The Support Relief Group (SRG) is a program developed by BHA to satisfy its growing need for surge capacity. In response to numerous disasters worldwide, it became clear that BHA could not find, in a timely manner, adequate staff to cover all positions in the field and in Washington, and to backfill for permanent staff deploying to the field. The SRG program brings on board select candidates who could work on a part-time intermittent basis, for no more than 250 days per calendar year, and who can be deployed within hours to facilitate BHA’s response to disasters, or to backfill staff in Washington and other locations. SRG positions are contracted for five years.
