We are presently identifying candidates for the following proposal effort position: Program Manager - IPPOS. The requirement for this contract is to support U.S. government efforts to enhance the operational effectiveness of police in peacekeeping operations. The goal of this program is to improve the capacity of partner countries to generate, train, deploy, and lead effective police officers and units in UN Peacekeeping missions by providing capacity-building support and specialized training.

  • Build institutional sustainability to improve the management, logistical, and administrative capacities that contribute to high-quality deployments.
  • Collaborate with UN Police Division to improve doctrine, develop UN training standards for police, and certify UN instructors.
  • Develop local training staff and mentor them as they deliver UN required pre-deployment training to Formed Police Units (FPUs) and Individual Police Officers (IPOs).

The Program Manager is ultimately responsible to the Contracting Officer, Contracting Officer’s Representative, and INL Program Officer for meeting the IPPOS task order objectives, staying within budget, and addressing all performance issues. This position may require travel to and within countries with security, health, and other potentially dangerous conditions.
