USPSC Support Relief Group Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (SRG WASH) Advisor (Multiple Positions)
USAID/Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance
About the organization
The Support Relief Group (SRG) is a program developed by OFDA 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 full-time for discrete periods of time, but on an intermittent basis for no more than 250 days per calendar year, and can be deployed within hours to facilitate OFDA’s response to disasters, or to backfill staff in Washington and other locations. SRG staff can be used for activations as short as one day or for 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. The SRG program is managed by OAT in OFDA's OPS Division.
