Under BHA, which merged the former USAID’s Office of Food for Peace (FFP) and Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), PAs may be responsible for expanded portfolios that require coordination among multiple teams, competence in the preferred processes of each team, and familiarity with different programming or technical contexts. In addition, PAs will need to learn new BHA processes and systems while simultaneously becoming familiar with the different processes and systems that OFDA and FFP used and that will remain as reference points in the new bureau.

Specific PA duties vary based on division or team assignments. PA duties include and are not limited to:

? Facilitating the clearance of programmatic, technical, or administrative memos and other documents;
? Researching, collecting, and analyzing data in response to internal or external data requests; and
? Updating programmatic, technical, or administrative trackers and consistently monitoring data quality.

For PAs assigned to support award-making and award management, additional duties include:
? Conducting the initial review and processing of incoming applications, including reviewing submissions for completeness, performing initial data entry, and compiling feedback from programmatic and technical staff;
? Preparing award packages;
? Organizing and maintaining grant documentation, including grantee reports and correspondence;
? Tracking grantee evaluation, monitoring, and reporting compliance;
? Reviewing and preparing post-award management documentation in support of Agreement Officer Representatives; and
? Monitoring, tracking, and processing programmatic close-out actions.

? Possess excellent judgment and reliability,
