LATE BREAKING JOB OPENINGS For the Period of November 16 -  November 18,
2010.  




VARIOUS POSITIONS, IMPROVING ECONOMIC GOVERNANCE
LIBERIA 

AMEX International, Inc., a Washington, DC-based international consulting
firm, holds 
and bids on major contracts with the U.S. Agency for International
Development 
(USAID) to perform a variety of long- and short-term projects worldwide.
AMEX is 
preparing to bid on a new 5-year project planned by USAID that will help
build the 
capacity of targeted Government of Liberia (GOL) Ministries and Agencies
(M&As) to 
improve economic governance. USAID has issued a draft statement of work
(SOW) for 
the project, titled the Liberia Governance and Economic Management Support
Program 
(GEMS Program).  The GEMS program will support the GOL's capacity building
priorities which have been shaped through the Governance and Economic
Management 
Assistance Program (GEMAP), of which USAID is a major partner. USAID,
through 
the GEMS Program, will partner with the GOL to build on GEMAP successes
along 
with other economic governance donors. The new capacity building program
will have a 
broader reach than the GEMAP program, which focused on revenue-oriented
ministries, 
and will support direct technical and managerial capacity building and
formal classroom 
training.  The Contractor (successful bidder) that will be selected to
operate the GEMS 
Program will be required to build capacity using a results-oriented
approach, whereby 
participating institutions will develop and maintain systems that increase
transparency 
and accountability, increase efficiency, reduce expenditures, increase
revenue, and limit 
opportunities for corruption. The Contractor will collaborate significantly
with GOL and 
other donor partners and design a support approach that is fully integrated
with 
Government of Liberia strategic frameworks. Bidders are requested to propose
programs aimed at achieving the tasks stated in the SOW.  This will be a
complex 
program with many issues that need to be addressed by a core staff of at
least 5 long-
term specialists based in Liberia for the 5-year duration of the program, as
well as 
periodic short-term specialists. Both expat and native Liberian experts are
sought for 
these long-term and short-term positions. To understand the full scope of
work required, 
as well as the specific qualifications required of candidates, applicants
need to read the 
full draft SOW before submitting their applications to be considered for any
position(s). 
This SOW, as well as other details related to applying for any position, can
be found on 
the job openings page of the Recruitment Section of www.amexdc.com.
Applications 
are requested by December 6.
