ZemiTek, LLC is a Woman-Owned, SBA-certified 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) based in the Washington, DC metro area. We have a strong record delivering innovative and high-quality solutions. Since 2007, ZemiTek has provided technical assistance, project management, information technology (IT), knowledge management, monitoring and evaluation, training and learning development, and institutional support services.
ZemiTek is seeking a Senior Program Manager to assist the Local Works Coordinator in leading the operations of the Local Works program and the Unsolicited Solutions for Locally Led Development program (US4LLD) for the Local, Faith-based, and Transformative Partnerships Hub, within USAID’s Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation (DDI/LFT).
The Locally Led Development Initiative programs in DDI/LFT work toward the day when foreign assistance is no longer needed, and empowered local actors lead and sustain their own development. Through funding and technical leadership, these initiatives provide USAID missions and staff with the knowledge, skills, tools, and resources to ensure that development assistance is locally led and advances self-reliance. These initiatives include the flagship Local Works program, the Cooperative Development Program (CDP), the Small Project Assistance Program (SPA, in collaboration with Peace Corps), a number of co-created research and development initiatives under the Broad Agency Announcement for Locally Led Development Innovation (BAA-LLDI), and the Locally Led Development Annual Program Statement (APS). Among the Locally Led Development Initiatives in the LFT Hub is US4LLD, a funding opportunity for meritorious, unsolicited applications that advance locally led development. The Hub also uses its resources to provide communications, research, training, piloting, and other technical services for the benefit of the wider Agency. More information on the programs in the Hub can be found here.
