REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR MISSION WIDE EXECUTIVE COACHING TO PREPARE AND SUSTAIN LEADERSHIP
FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
STATEMENT OF WORK
MISSION WIDE EXECUTIVE COACHING TO PREPARE AND SUSTAIN LEADERSHIP
USAID’s Mission to Nigeria has gone through tremendous changes during the past two years, due to the COVID pandemic upheaval in the country. Mission personnel has endured an authorized departure of staff and the resulting lack of staff in a place where it is already difficult to recruit staff.
Simultaneously deteriorating security and insecure environment continues to restrict both official and personal travel within Nigeria, complicating program management and the quality of life.
USAID/Nigeria is comprised of thirteen offices: the front office, seven technical offices (health, education, economic growth, HIV/AIDS, democracy & governance, humanitarian assistance response, office of transition Initiatives), and four support offices (executive office, financial management, program, and regional legal office). In addition, one Regional Legal Officer USDH is located within the Mission.
In 2019 the Mission was approved for 23 new positions in a location that has historically had difficulty in recruiting and retaining staff. In 2020 a new Mission Director brought new leadership to the Mission. Mission management would like to take advantage of the opportunities offered by these many changes and challenges by strengthening core staff, especially FSN, for taking on greater responsibility and providing leadership for the Mission.
