Job Details



Full Job Description

WWC Federal, an operating firm of Command Holdings, is seeking an experienced Anti-Corruption Technical Officer (ACTO) to support the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID’s) Anti-Corruption Center (ACC). The ACTO will work in the ACC’s Technical Leadership, Programming, Integration and Response Pillar (Pillar 1), providing technical expertise and design support in the areas of anti-corruption, democracy, and/or governance.

As a member of the ACC’s Pillar 1 team, the ACTO will support the implementation of the ACC’s Anti-Corruption Technical Clinics, designed to promote understanding and uptake of the USAID’s Anti-Corruption Policy and new anti-corruption directions; provide technical expertise and demand-based support to USAID Missions looking to design new and enhanced anti-corruption programs; support ongoing programmatic procurement efforts; and contribute to efforts aimed at furthering integration of anti-corruption measures throughout USAID’s work (including the development of relevant guidance). This work will help position USAID to deliver on the Administration’s ambitious anti-corruption agenda, including enhancing USAID’s ability to play a leading role in the fight against corruption and elevating efforts to integrate anti-corruption approaches across the Agency. USAID’s Anti-Corruption Center was created to elevate, strengthen, and integrate anti-corruption across USAID’s work and rapidly enhance the Agency’s capacity to play a central role in developing and implementing the Biden-Harris Administration’s ambitious anti-corruption agenda.

The ACTO will serve as an anti-corruption advisor and will have significant knowledge and experience in the anti-corruption and governance fields, including experience with programs aimed at preventing, detecting and sanctioning corruption. Under the direction of the ACC’s Deputy for Programs and the Pillar 1 Lead, the ACTO is expected to carry out work assignments using independent professional judgment to ensure that effective Mission support and technical leadership is provided. The ACTO will perform work of outstanding difficulty and responsibility. Under Pillar 1 leadership, the ACTO will work closely with a broad range of internal and external stakeholders, including other ACC colleagues, USAID staff in other Bureaus and Operating Units, and may engage in interagency cooperation with the Departments of State, Justice and Treasury, and implementing partners as requested.

  • Supporting the implementation of the ACC’s Anti-Corruption Technical Clinics (including running clinics and follow-on sessions with USAID Missions), which are designed to promote understanding and uptake of the USAID Anti-Corruption Policy and new anti-corruption directions;
  • Serving as a technical advisor to USAID Missions and Operating Units in designing innovative and evidence-based activities, programs, policies and strategies aimed at strengthening country capacity and commitment to prevent, combat and sanction corruption.

This may also include supporting the development of strategy and country-level plans; participating in the development of anti-corruption-related performance indicators; conducting anti-corruption and other assessments; integrating best practices and lessons learned into cross-sectoral programming; and providing technical support to the Agency’s regional Bureaus. This may also include helping Missions with the monitoring and evaluation of anti-corruption programs to help them adapt to changing circumstances and to further expand the anti-corruption sector’s evidence base and learning.
  • Supporting design and finalization of procurements related to the ACC’s bold new suite of global anti-corruption programming;
  • Participating in and supporting the ACC’s Bureau and Independent Office (B/IO) Working Group, including maintaining a continuous interchange with other technical officers in USAID, especially within the other Pillar Bureaus, for information-sharing, identification of opportunities and constraints to cross-cutting programs, best practices, joint mission support and trainings, as well as research platforms and monitoring and evaluation systems;
  • Contributing to the development of technical guidance and products to inform USAID’s anti-corruption programs, including anti-corruption programming and integration guidance produced under ACC’s Pillar 1. This includes translating state-of-the-art technical expertise into tools and guidance that can be easily shared and absorbed by USAID officers;
  • As needed, drafting internal USG and external communication materials (including talking points, briefing papers, fact sheets, and website and social media content) related to the ACC; and
