USPSC Support Relief Group (SRG) Generalist (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 contactors include intermittent backfill for permanent staff overseas, covering vacancies domestically, and responding to numerous disasters worldwide in a timely manner. Currently, about half of all SRG activations are domestic and half are overseas in various capacities.

The SRG program brings on board select candidates who work for discrete periods, 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 the option to extend up to five years.
