Supply Chain Management Program Advisor (FARO) – Macfadden – USAID


Macfadden, an Amentum company, is seeking a Supply Chain Management (SCM) Advisor to support a cadre of supply chain experts in USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) to enable BHA’s quick onset response and steady state operations globally. BHA leads and coordinates the U.S. Government’s humanitarian assistance efforts overseas in response to natural disasters and complex emergencies. The Bureau also supports early recovery efforts that restore and protect basic systems and services and invests in risk reduction programs that prevent or reduce risks associated with chronic and recurrent hazards. The SCM Advisor leverages their knowledge and expertise to advance the SCM Division’s critical mandate to provide rapid logistics and procurement support to address humanitarian crises.

Location: Washington, DC based, hybrid (2 days in office out of every 2 weeks)

The SCM Advisor is embedded within BHA’s Office of Field and Response Operations (FARO), which leads and manages operational assistance and the purchase and delivery of goods and services in response to declared foreign disasters and international humanitarian needs in key functional areas, including supply-chain management, procurement, logistics, oversight, and operational coordination with the U.S. military.

The FARO Supply Chain Management (SCM) Division provides logistics and procurement support in response to humanitarian crises around the world. The Division has two geographic teams—one for Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and another for the Middle East, North Africa, and Eurasia—that are responsible for: the procurement and transportation of food and non-food items (NFIs); maintenance of global prepositioning warehouses for rapid deployment of critical relief goods; reviewing proposal submissions and analyzing operational plans and budgets through a supply chain management lens; coordination with implementing partners, private sector service providers, and the Global Logistics Cluster; provision of logistics support to Disaster Assistance Response Teams (DARTs) and Response Management Teams (RMTs); the assessment of transportation infrastructure for steady state and emergent response operations; and monitoring and evaluation of partner supply chains.

The SCM Advisor supports the two SCM geographic team leads and engagement with BHA’s three geographic offices. The Advisor’s day-to-day work assignments and oversight will be provided by the SCM Division Chief and Geographic team Leads, with formal supervisory and evaluation functions performed by a Macfadden contract supervisor.
