IBI is an international economic development consulting firm based in the United States that specializes in economic growth, public financial management, governance, and human and institutional performance improvement. Established in 1996, IBI has successfully implemented some 40 projects in over 70 countries.
IBI is currently looking for a Chief of Party for an upcoming project in Liberia. The expected scope of work for this activity includes working with the Government of Liberia (GOL) on public financial management reforms, strategic communications and improving transparency, private sector engagement support, and work with local institutions and civil society organizations to foster networks of organizations that improve governance, transparency and accountability. This activity seeks to reduce the risk of conflict and violence associated with economic instability and hardships imposed by the COVID crisis. The project will aim to improve citizen engagement in the economic reform process, promote economic resilience and social cohesion, and foster economic recovery by supporting vulnerable populations. The Chief of Party will be responsible for all aspects of project implementation: he/she will provide overall strategic, managerial and technical direction for the project to help ensure its success, identify issues and risks, suggest program adjustments during implementation in a timely manner, and work with various stakeholders, including high level Liberian government and USAID officials.
