Finance and Administration Director – Uganda Health Activity
In anticipation of a new multi-year, multi-sectoral USAID-funded “Uganda Health Activity”, IMA World Health/Corus International is seeking a Finance and Administration Director (F&A Director).
Corus International is a family of organizations which believes that those who were born into impossible circumstances deserve the opportunity for a better life. Corus was formed through the strategic merger of IMA World Health (operating as a public health organization since 1960), and Lutheran World Relief (operating as a livelihoods organization since 1945), and today includes the smaller entities of Charlie Goldsmith Associates, Ground Up Investing, and Farmers Market Coffee. Corus International works in over 20 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America, with a primary focus on health, livelihoods, and emergency response.
The Uganda Health Activity (UHA) aims to increase access to, and use of quality healthcare services, and to improve the performance of the health system at subnational levels in priority districts. Intended high-level results include: 1) improved access to and use of quality health services in maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), family planning (FP), reproductive health (RH), nutrition, water-sanitation-hygiene (WASH), and infection prevention and control (IPC) at the facility and community levels; 2) enhanced local ownership and leadership for sustainable health outcomes; and 3) strengthened health system resilience at the regional, district, and community-levels. UHA also will strengthen the capacity of local PEPFAR implementing partners (IPs) to lead and sustain the epidemic response as part of sustainability efforts.
The F&A Director will report to the COP and will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of budgeting, financial management, and reporting; sub-award management and procurements; human resources management; asset management; logistics; and compliance of prime award with terms and conditions of the award. S/he will be responsible for managing the cooperative agreement budget and preparing financial reports for submission to USAID. The F&A Director also will ensure funds expended are compliant with USG regulations and policies.
