Mogadishu Coordinator (SMLP-2) – HRO-356

Long-term Cooperating Country National (CCN) position based in Mogadishu, with routine travel within Somalia and quarterly travel to Nairobi, in accordance with project requirements.
The Mogadishu Coordinator will work with our Data Collection and Research Partners to deliver the fieldwork for third-party monitoring (TPM) of USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) activities in Somalia under the Somalia Monitoring Learning Project (SMLP-2). They will be responsible for ensuring the timely planning of TPM site visits, engaging BHA’s implementing partners (IP), and preparing background information on the activities, components and programs. They will coordinate all field mobilization, triangulating updates and progress reports from each field team. Reporting to the Senior Monitoring Advisor, the Mogadishu Coordinator will also work closely with the Monitoring Advisor, and the Security Operations Officer to ensure operational protocols are followed and that potential risks are duly mitigated.

Integrity Global, in partnership with Management Systems International (MSI) and with leading research and data collection firms in Somalia, will establish a third-party monitoring system to collect data that verifies partner reported outputs and selected outcomes. It will deduce lessons learned from humanitarian programs in Somalia funded by the USAID Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)/Somalia. The overall goal of SMLP-2 is to increase BHA/Somalia’s access to independent, verifiable data related to the 1) quantity and quality of activities delivered, and 2) performance of BHA-funded programs in Somalia. This increased access to data will allow BHA/Somalia to make more evidence-based program design, implementation, and strategy decisions.
