Duty Location(s): Iraq

Work Schedule: Full Time

Time Limit: Term, not to exceed 5 Years

Notes:

This position is located in Iraq

USAID/Iraq represents the largest overseas mission of USAID, with
a
headquarters in Baghdad and three regional offices. The total staff
will
soon number over 250, with program management responsibilities currently
exceeding $4 billion. The Mission currently reports to the Coalition
Provisional Authority, or CPA, which governs Iraq along with the
Governing
Council. By July 1, 2004, it is anticipated that USAID will report to
the
new US Ambassador to Iraq as a new Government of Iraq is formed.



Programs in Iraq come under four major rubrics ? infrastructure,
including
power, water, transport and buildings; health and education; governance,
including local governance, civil society, and elections; and economic
growth and agriculture. Much has been accomplished since USAID programs
began in February, 2002, and much more remains to be done. Security in
Iraq is a major concern. However, all personnel live in large compounds
which are secure and well protected. In addition, substantial resources
are provided to protect all US employees while in country. Because of
the
security profile, assignments are restricted to employees only, without
spouses or other dependents. There are modern, well-equipped offices
and
new housing units for USAID, and personnel there work hard but love the
job.



Applications will be reviewed for qualifications to ensure that each
applicant meets the basic qualifications listed in the announcement. All
qualified applicants will be placed on a revolving register for that

OTHER SIGNIFICANT FACTS:

Medical Clearance - A medical clearance for the applicant is required
prior to being hired for this position. Foreign Service members must be
able to serve at any overseas post. Many facilities are remote,
unhealthy, or have limited medical support. Therefore, each applicant
must meet medical fitness standards which are, of necessity, often more
rigorous than those of other professions. Prior to being appointed to
the
Foreign Service, applicants must have a thorough medical examination and
receive an unlimited medical clearance for assignment worldwide. After
receiving a conditional offer of employment, each applicant is provided
with instructions for the examining physician(s), which outline the
precise requirements. Applicants living within a fifty-mile radius of
Washington, DC, must have the medical exam performed by the Department
of
State Office of Medical Services. USAID considers the medical condition
of eligible family members for assignment purposes. Therefore, USAID
requires medical clearances for eligible family members before they can
travel overseas to accompany an employee on assignment at US Government
expense. Family members who, for medical reasons, cannot accompany an
employee on an overseas assignment, are eligible to receive a separate
maintenance allowance.

These are Testing Designated Positions (TDPs) under the Agency's
approved
Drug-Free Work Place Program. All applicants selected for this position
will be subject to random drug testing once they begin working for the
Agency.

All applicants will be considered without regard to race, color,
religion,
national origin, marital status, political affiliation, age, sex, sexual
orientation, physical disabilities, membership in an employee
organization, or any other non-merit factors.

This agency provides reasonable accommodation to applicants with
disabilities. If you need a reasonable accommodation for any part of
the
application and hiring process, please notify the agency. The decision
on
granting reasonable accommodation will be on a case-by-case basis.

Relocation expenses are authorized.

As a condition of employment, all male applicants born after December
31,
1959, must have registered for the selective service. If selected for
this position, the applicant must sign a statement certifying his
registration, or the applicant must demonstrate exempt status under the
Selective Service Law.

Security Clearance - A background investigation is also required for all
applicants. Eligible applicants will be asked to submit forms required
for a security clearance and suitability determination for appointment
to
the Foreign Service. The clearance process considers such factors as:
registration for the Selective Service; failure to repay a US
government-guaranteed student loan; past problems with credit or
bankruptcy; failure to meet tax obligations; unsatisfactory employment
records; violations of the law; drug or alcohol abuse; a criminal
record;
extensive travel; education; residence and/or employment overseas; dual
citizenship; foreign contacts; immediate family or relatives who are not
citizens of the United States and/or a foreign born spouse; or less than

with other federal, state, and local agencies.
