Project Description

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) leads international development and humanitarian efforts to save lives, reduce poverty, strengthen democratic governance and help people progress beyond assistance. The Global Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Lab is housed in the Management Bureau's Office of Acquisition and Assistance (OAA). The A&A Lab is an interconnected network of A&A staff advancing the Agency's mission through workforce development and the testing and scaling of innovations in A&A both domestically and at our field missions abroad.

We are looking for forward-thinking strategists and designers to help modernize the way the Global A&A Lab does business and design a pathway to shift current OAA culture to one that is kind, flexible, and adaptive using scientifically proven methods. Interns will learn about USAID, Effective Partnering and Procurement Reform efforts, the Agency's A&A Strategy, and USAID foreign and civil service. Familiarity with international development and/or procurement is a plus, but not required, as learning is part of this internship experience.
