We utilize innovative practices in adult education, communication technology, and results-based program management to achieve programs with tangible impacts for real people. GRI is a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) based in San Francisco, California.

    PROJECT SUMMARY:
    USAID’s Initiative to Strengthen Local Administrations (ISLA) Project is a 5-year, $62 million program which aims to improve provincial governance in the areas of fiscal and development planning, representation of citizens, and enhanced delivery of public services. USAID’s ISLA Program will strengthen subnational systems of planning, operations, communication, representation, and citizen engagement.

    The core problems to be addressed are poor integration of provincial priorities into the national plan and budget, and weakened flows of information. The program will work within the existing system to improve its functionality. This will be done by fostering a combination of top-down and bottom-up consultative processes between central and provincial levels to formulate plans and budgets that align with local community service delivery priorities and with national developmental priorities and available resources.

    USAID ISLA Project comprises four components:

    1. Provincial Planning: ISLA will strengthen the capacity of provincial actors and administrative offices to strategically plan and coordinate. Improved center-province-center communication and collaboration will strengthen linkages between the central and provincial levels for planning, budgeting, and service delivery.

    2. Sub-National Institution Building: The project will strengthen the foundations of provincial entities and the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) through targeted capacity building efforts focused on institutionalizing systems and administrative processes and strengthening the enabling environment.

    3. Inclusive Advocacy: The project will improve the ability of provincial actors to represent citizen interests in planning and service delivery, and advocate to their central level counterparts for the inclusion of provincial priorities in national plans and budgets.

    4. Public Engagement: ISLA will improve the ability of provincial authorities to reach out to citizens and inform them of government decisions, actions and general information while soliciting feedback to understand citizen priorities and needs.

    JOB SUMMARY:
    The Gender Manager will manage and implement all gender activities for the USAID-funded Initiative to Strengthen Local Administration.
