Project Associate

Position: Project Associate

Location: Washington, DC

Integra is a small-business international development firm, specializing in the implementation of demand-driven development analytics, monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL), private sector engagement, and capacity building projects.  Our technical expertise is broad, encompassing ICT, agriculture and food security, economic growth, energy, climate resilience, environment and natural resources, and gender and social inclusion.  We have provided analytical and MEL services to donor-funded projects for over ten years, working across more than 50 different countries, impacting millions of stakeholders, and leveraging over $1.2 billion in public and private investment for development reforms.

Position Description:

The Project Associate position is designed for a well-organized and highly motivated individual to support and work under a number of USAID and MCC contracts awarded to Integra. Most notably, USAID awarded Integra the Learning, Evaluation, and Analysis Project III (LEAP III) and the Asia Emerging Opportunities (AEO) projects in May and August 2018, respectively.  LEAP III is a five-year, $19.6 million project supporting USAID Missions worldwide by providing various economic analyses, monitoring and evaluation, and project-design support services.  AEO, while similar in structure, is $8 million and focused on supporting Missions in Asia. In four years, these two contracts have seen over 75 distinct activities over 30 countries with work focused on private sector engagement; policy and enabling environment reform; and monitoring, evaluation, and learning.
