QED is seeking a full-time Chief of Party for an anticipated five-year USAID Program Cycle Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Support Activity in Asia. This Activity is aimed at strengthening USAID’s program cycle systems in the Asia region and to enhance the capacity of local/regional entities in order to improve accountability and the use of empirical evidence for programming, learning, and adaptive management with a clear focus on robust evaluation design, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), collaboration, learning, and adapting (CLA), and knowledge management (KM) at all levels from a Mission’s Strategy to Project and Activity. In parallel, and on a demand basis, the Activity will provide consistently high-quality analytic products that are fully compliant with all relevant USAID policies and guidance to meet rolling program cycle needs of nearly two dozen client operating units across the region.
