“Afghanistan's Measure for Accountability and Transparency” project (AMANAT) is a USAID activity focused on supporting Afghan government and non-government institutions reduce and prevent corruption in the delivery of public services. The project works closely with local counterpart agencies to identify public services that are particularly vulnerable to corruption, develop mitigation strategies, implement those initiatives, and monitor their impact. Examples of AMANAT’s reforms include administrative streamlining, improved internal controls, e-governance applications, more open data, and strengthening complaints handling by government agencies. The project also promotes better communication of these reforms to generate more public trust in government. In addition, civil society, business and the media play major roles in AMANAT by conducting robust monitoring and oversight of these institutional reforms and their impacts.
The Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) will report to the project’s Chief of Party, will work closely with the technical teams, and will specifically manage the civil society, grants and communication teams. The DCOP must fulfil the role as Chief of Party when the Chief of Party is absent. The DCOP must be able to interact effectively with the project’s USAID Mission counterparts, the US Embassy, other donors, and host country beneficiaries in both government and civil society. This is a full-time position in the project’s Kabul office. Initially, the selected applicant will work remotely due to the COVID-19 situation.
