USAID has not released a request for proposals (RFP) or a draft scope of work (SOW) but Abt Associates anticipates the Activity will enhance regional collaboration among the Eastern & Southern Caribbean (ESC) countries to grow blue and green businesses and investment, increase climate resilience and funding for new sustainable economic interventions, and explore how blue space can be utilized to improve employment and livelihoods.
The DCOP will oversee day-to-day operations, provide operational and strategic oversight, and support the technical delivery of interventions, reporting directly to the Chief of Party (COP). The DCOP will manage program operations and administration and support technical tasks for the activity and ensure overall compliance with USAID rules and regulations, financial management, international and local personnel recruitment and management, subcontractor management, and activity start-up and close-out. The DCOP will work closely with the Chief of Party and other team members to guide interventions to meet the activity’s objectives.
The position is anticipated to be full-time for the five-year duration and is based in Bridgetown, Barbados. The position is contingent upon the activity’s award and USAID approval. The tentative start date is around August or September 2023.
