Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 7,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.
PSI has operated in Haiti as a local NGO for more than 25 years, having launched products ranging from condoms to contraceptives, and ORS to safe water. In line with its institutional development vision, PSI Haiti has deepened its national roots, changing its name to reflect a more local entity now called Organisation Haitienne de Marketing Social pour la Santé (OHMaSS), and developing a more diverse board. Thanks to a dedicated team of 85+ staff members, PSI is the principal recipient of Global Fund resources for Malaria, HIV and TB, with a total of $105M until December 2020.
We are looking for a Grant Compliance & Subrecipient Management Director to support our Global Fund HIV, TB, and Malaria awards that include 16 subrecipients (SRs) as implementing partners across 22 different interventions. The Grant Compliance & Subrecipient Management Director will be responsible for overall grant management for the Global Fund awards, liaising closely with PSI Haiti’s Finance, Supply Chain, and PMU departments, as well as with relevant PSI Washington departments, to ensure contractual and financial compliance to the agreement. The Grant Compliance & Subrecipient Management Director will be the award management point of contact for OHMaSS – either coordinating with Washington for communications originating from Headquarters, or leading discussion originating from Haiti. In addition, a critical responsibility of this position will be overall responsibility for managing and monitoring the SRs to make sure they comply with all contractual and financial terms and conditions of their agreements. The Grant Compliance & Subrecipient Management Director will support the use of all Grants & Contracts organizational tools, support trainings and provide guidance and mentoring designed to build the capacity of both the SRs’ and his/her direct staff to effectively manage GF awards, and provide mentoring to the OHMaSS Finance Department, as needed
