The fight against corruption is a key challenge of our lifetime. As the President said in the Interim National Security Strategic Guidance, corruption “rots democracy from the inside and is increasingly weaponized by authoritarian states to undermine democratic institutions.” It also impedes development across all sectors and robs citizens of the dignity and progress they so richly deserve. For these reasons, the Administrator has activated the Anti-Corruption Task Force (ACTF) to strengthen, elevate, and integrate anti-corruption across USAID’s work. This position is located in USAID’s Anti-Corruption Task Force (ACTF). The ACTF is recruiting motivated staff who want to help boost and shape the Agency’s response to anti-corruption, one of the Administrator’s signature efforts.
The five ACTF pillars serve to: (1) shape ambitious anti-corruption policy commitments and programmatic deliverables to announce at the Summit for Democracy; (2) lead USAID’s engagement in the development of a national anti-corruption strategy as required by the National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM); (3) work closely with Regional and Pillar Bureaus and field Missions to launch new, multisectoral anti-corruption initiatives as opportunities and challenges emerge; (4) develop risk-based, tailored safeguards to address gaps in USAID’s risk-management architecture; and (5) build long-term capacity at USAID to respond to the growing demand for anti-corruption interventions.
The ACTF is seeking a Program Analyst II to support the historic elevation of anti-corruption at USAID and across the U.S. government. The Program Analyst II will support finding and developing partnerships with actors inside and outside government in support of the ACTF’s work. In particular, we seek to build meaningful partnerships and co-create programming with the private sector, other donors, civil society, and local solvers to accelerate the use of innovation and technology in the fight against corruption, particularly transnational corruption. The ACTF is a small team in which you will have the opportunity to make significant contributions to this important policy area at a critical time.
This position supports cross-cutting work among the Pillars of the Anti-Corruption Task Force. The position reports to the ACTF Transnational Organized Crime lead. The Program Analyst II would work in close collaboration with other members of the ACTF, especially as it relates to design of relevant programming.
