RTI International is an independent non-profit research firm in the United States. We help developing countries and communities address complex problems in education, health, food security, governance, and economic development. Our programs emphasize sustainability, bringing partners in government together with foundations, donor organizations, the private sector, and academic institutions.


RTI International is currently accepting applications for a Senior Finance and Administration Manager for an anticipated USAID-funded Improved Health Service Delivery activity in Haiti. This anticipated activity aims to deliver health services from the Ministry of Health’s Essential Package of Health Services through facilities and attending communities. These services are to include: 1) Maternal, Child Health and Nutrition Services; 2) HIV/AIDS; and 3) Family Planning and Reproductive Health (e.g.. services, counseling, & commodities). These services will be rendered both at facility levels and within the community through mobile clinics and community health workers and will also include higher level services such as integrated management of newborn and child illness, and basic emergency obstetric and newborn care. Additionally, it is envisioned that the activity will have a cross-cutting component ensuring integration and collaboration among all health services, monitoring and evaluation, community participation/health system strengthening and capacity building; and coordination with the Government of Haiti through the Ministry of Health, local NGOs, and other partners to develop a deliberate transition plan (and timeframe) to reduce humanitarian assistance to the Government of Haiti. The activity is expected to build on previous and on-going USAID/Haiti interventions.


The Senior Finance and Administration Manager will be responsible for all aspects of project finances and administration management. She/he will ensure that national legislation is adhered to and that country-specific standards are applied in ensuring efficient use of resources. She/he will manage the local support team and work closely with the Chief of Party (COP) and RTI home office project management team to ensure project implementation within the budget, schedule, and scope.
