Експерт(-ка) із залучення громадян (Civil Engagement Expert) в проєкт «Сприяння доброчесності у публічному секторі»

DAI is seeking highly qualified candidates to occupy full-time Civil Engagement Expert position to work on the recently awarded Promoting Integrity in the Public Sector Activity (Pro-Integrity), a $90 million, multiyear contract funded by USAID.

Project Background

The Promoting Integrity in the Public Sector Activity (Pro-Integrity) will concentrate on addressing three narrow development challenges within its manageable interest and influence to overcome corruption risks at the national institutional level, local government level, and related to Ukraine’s recovery and reconstruction. Specifically, these include:

  • Anti-Corruption Institutional Challenges: Nascent anti-corruption institutions facing depleted human resources and budget austerity during wartime face challenges guaranteeing adequate corruption prevention, deterrence, and the inevitability of punishment for corruption offenses.
  • Weak Anti-Corruption Controls in Local Government: Weak anti-corruption compliance and control measures in local communities, depleted human resources, and humanitarian emergencies during wartime challenge adequate corruption prevention, deterrence, and the inevitability of punishment for corruption offenses at the local level.
  • Recovery and Reconstruction Corruption Risks: Unresolved corruption risks due to the lack of internal control, non-transparent procedure, and weak civil oversight over key reconstruction processes, including infrastructure restoration, asset management, and environmental recovery, create risks for transparent and accountable reconstruction and recovery.

The Pro-Integrity Activity will pursue a problem-driven approach addressing the root causes through targeted objectives aligned with the mission and U.S. government strategy.

Position Description
