Type of Contract: Time-and-material (T&M) with 1 Base Year and 4 Option Year Periods. 1. Introduction and Background MCCs mission is to provide grant assistance to support economic growth and poverty reduction in select developing countries with a demonstrated commitment to just and democratic governance, economic freedom, and investments in their citizenry. MCCs partner countries enter into a five-year agreement (Compact) with MCC that includes a plan for achieving shared development objectives and the responsibilities of each country in achieving those objectives. Our model is defined by core principles, of selectivity, country ownership, transparency, and a focus on results. Our values identify who we are and what is important to us. Our Values are CLEAR: Embrace Collaboration, Always Learn, Practice Excellence, Be Accountable and Respect individuals and ideas. MCCs values define how we behave on a daily basis, both as individuals and as an institution, in pursuit of our mission. They guide how we make decisions, set priorities, address challenges, manage tradeoffs, recruit and develop staff, and work together with our country partners and stakeholders. The department of Compact Operations (DCO) is responsible for developing and implementing MCCs compact programs. The department ensures that MCC compacts are designed and implemented in compliance with agency standards for procurement, financial management, environmental and social performance, and gender integration and social inclusion. Within DCO, the Sector Operations Division is responsible for the development and oversight of MCCs agriculture, land, human and community development investments, program procurement and financial services, gender integration and social inclusion. The mission of MCCs Human and Community Development (HCD) unit is to enhance peoples choices by expanding their capacities to lead healthy lives, be knowledgeable and productive, and be able to come together to address common problems. This is a multi-faceted and lifelong process that requires building both human capital - predominately through education and health investments - as well as social capital - predominately through investments in community and participatory development. MCC works with partner countries to integrate internationally-accepted principles of environmental and social sustainability into the design and implementation of compacts. MCC recognizes that the pursuit of sustainable economic growth and a healthy environment are related. Economic growth that doesnt adequately address the associated risks of environmental degradation can leave the poor particularly vulnerable. In collaboration with MCC, partner countries are striving to achieve sustainable economic development through their compact-funded activities while at the same time minimizing environmental and social risks and enhancing natural resource protections. 2. Scope of Position The Department of Compact Operations (DCO), Sector Operations (SO) Division, is seeking a Personal Services Contractors (PSCs) to serve as a Consultant in the Human and Community Development (HCD) Practice Group. The PSCs shall serve as HCD leads for projects related to education in various stages of development and implementation. The PSCs will also support HCDs technical leadership role to build and share knowledge and best practices on effective integration of human and community development. The PSCs reports to the Practice Lead and Senior Director (PLSD) for HCD. This position is not authorized to supervise any Federal employees. 3. Personal Services Contract MCC is authorized to enter into a contract with an individual as a Personal Services Contractor (PSCs) under the authority of Section 614(a)(8) of the Millennium Challenge Act of 2003. A personal services contract is different from non-personal services Government contract, which establishes an independent contract relationship. Under a non-personal services contract, the contractor or employees of the contractor are subject to the technical direction but not the supervision of the MCC. As defined by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 37.104, a personal services contract is characterized by the employer-employee relationship it creates between the Government and the contractor personnel. Thus, the PSCs is subject to the relatively continuous technical direction, supervision, and control of the MCC. PSCs may be assigned inherently governmental duties (see FAR 7.502). By law and by the contracts terms, the PSCs is subject to most of the laws, rules and regulations applicable to the direct hire employee such as MCC regulations, conflict of interest, under some circumstances MCC authorized employment security clearances and financial disclosure. However, under the MCC personal services contract authority, PSCs are not employees for purposes of laws administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The following elements apply to this contract: (1) Performance in Washington, DC USA, MCC eligible countries, other US and foreign cities (as required for outreach purposes), and/or at the PSCs home of record. (2) Principal tools and equipment may be furnished by the Government. (3) Services are applied directly to the integral effort of agencies or an organizational subpart in furtherance of assigned function or mission. (4) Comparable services, meeting comparable needs, are performed in the same or similar agencies using civil service personnel. (5) The need for the type of service provided can reasonably be expected to last beyond 1 year. (6) The inherent nature of the service, or the manner in which it is provided, reasonably requires directly or indirectly, Government direction or supervision of contractor employees in order to- (i) Adequately protect the Governments interest; (ii) Retain control of the function involved; or (iii) Retain full personal responsibility for the function supported in a duly authorized Federal officer or employee. 4. Key Requirements Awardee must satisfy the following key requirements: • U.S. citizenship or legal, permanent resident with at least 2 years of residency history, preferably 3 years. • Must be able to obtain and maintain a federal security clearance. • Performance in Washington, DC USA, MCC eligible countries, other US and foreign cities (as required for outreach purposes), and/or at the PSCs home of record. • Domestic and international travel will be required. • Statement of Employment & Financial Interest (e.g., Office of Government Ethics "OGE Form-450" or similar statement) may be required. • Active System for Award Management (www.sam.gov) registration (this is a free, Government website) and be listed as sole-proprietor. • Designated and/or random drug testing required. 5.

Such success may be defined either as meeting disbursement and commitment targets, as meeting certain output indicators or in achieving impact objectives. • Coordinate and collaborate with other donor and in-country counterparts to ensure appropriate policy and program coordination. • Identify and take steps necessary to deploy consultants to augment internal resources to fulfill compact operations. • When working with more junior HCD staff, provide guidance and direction on technical program and administrative issues and provide substantive input of individual staff performance during the annual performance evaluation process. • Work with countries to develop, implement, and/or refine proposals for MCC-sponsored activities in education.

It is being established as a developmental position in an effort to expand the population of potential candidates and to attract and retain an individual with the potential to aspire to the full performance level position. Promotion to the full performance level is neither guaranteed nor implied and promotion will be based solely on the incumbents ability to perform at the Director (Environmental and Social Performance), MC-301-3A level as determined by the positions supervisor. • Perform other related duties as assigned. b) Travel MCC estimates that the incumbent will be required to undertake 6-8 international trips annually. c) Supervisory Controls As a recognized authority in the development and implementation of ESP programs and operations, the employee is subject only to administrative and policy direction concerning overall project priorities and objectives. The employee is typically delegated complete responsibility and authority to plan, schedule, and carry out major projects concerned with the analysis and evaluation of programs or organizational effectiveness. Analyses, evaluations, and recommendations developed by the employee are normally reviewed by management officials only for potential influence on broad agency policy objectives and program goals. Findings and recommendations are normally accepted without significant change. d) Guidelines Guidelines consist of general administrative policies, and program, management and organizational theories which require considerable adaptation and/or interpretation for application to issues and problems studied. Policies and precedent studies provide a basic outline of results desired, but do not go into detail as to the methods used to accomplish the project. Within the context of broad regulatory and procedural guidelines, the employee refines or develops more specific guidelines, such as implementing new or revised processes, methods and procedures. e) Complexity The employee plans, organizes, and completes analytical studies involving substantial aspects of key agency programs. As study coordinator, the employee assigns segments of the studies to various participants who are subject-matter specialists in fields appropriate to the study, coordinates the efforts of the group, and consolidates findings into a completed project. There is extreme complexity and difficulty in identifying the nature of the issues or problems to be studied and in planning, organizing, and determining the scope and depth of the studies. The nature and scope of the issues are largely undefined. Difficulty is also encountered in separating the substantive nature of the programs or issues into their administrative, technical, political, economic, fiscal, and other components, determining the nature and magnitude of the interactions, discerning the intent of legislation and broad agency policies, and determining how to translate the intent into recommended program actions. The work involves efforts to develop and implement programs based upon new or revised legislation requiring consideration of the immediate sequential, and long-range effects, both direct and indirect, of proposed actins on the public, other government programs, and/or private industry. f) Scope and Effect The purpose of the work is to perform very broad and extensive studies related to MCC programs which are of significant interest to the public, Congress, and MCC Compact country governments. Studies frequently involve extensive problems of coordination in fact-finding and in reviewing and evaluating recommendations in interested agencies or with outside groups. Recommendations involve highly significant programs or policy matters, and result in substantial redirection of federal efforts or policy related to major national issues. Results of work are critical to the mission of the agency or affect large numbers of people on a long-term, continuing basis. g) Personal Contacts/Purpose of Contacts Personal contacts are with high-ranking officials from outside the agency at national or international levels in highly unstructured settings. Examples include other agency heads, top congressional staff officials, or executives of comparable private sector organizations. Personal contacts include individuals and groups at all levels of the Corporation, representatives from other Federal agencies/organizations, MCAs, contractors, and the general public. The purpose of contacts is to influence, motivate, persuade or negotiate with others who may hold different points of views in order to influence managers or other officials to accept recommendations or to obtain the desired effect. h) Physical Demands The work is primarily sedentary, although some walking, bending, or carrying of light items may be involved. Travel may be required. i) Work Environment Work is performed in an office setting, although there is an expectation of work in the field. 6. Deliverables Deliverables are associated with the tasks identified in Section 5. Duties to include reports as required by the Contracting Officer Representative (COR). The PSCs will submit biweekly timesheets on a schedule and format determined by MCC.
