MCC’s mission is to provide grant assistance to support economic growth and poverty reduction in select developing countries with a demonstrated commitment to just and democratic governance, economic freedom, and investments in their citizenry. MCC’s partner countries enter into a five-year agreement (Compact) with MCC that includes a plan for achieving shared development objectives and the responsibilities of each country in achieving those objectives. Our model is defined by core principles, of selectivity, country ownership, transparency, and a focus on results.

Our values identify who we are and what is important to us. Our Values are CLEAR: Embrace Collaboration, Always Learn, Practice Excellence, Be Accountable and Respect individuals and ideas. MCC’s values define how we behave on a daily basis, both as individuals and as an institution, in pursuit of our mission. They guide how we make decisions, set priorities, address challenges, manage tradeoffs, recruit and develop staff, and work together with our country partners and stakeholders.

This position is located in the Infrastructure, Environment and Private Sector (IEPS) Division, Department of Compact Operations (DCO), Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).

2. Scope of Position

This position will serve as a Personal Services Contractor (PSC) within Energy Practice Group (EPG) in Department of Compact Operations (DCO), Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). DCO is responsible for developing and implementing MCC’s compact programs. The department ensures that MCC compacts are designed and implemented in compliance with agency standards for procurement, financial management, environmental and social performance, and gender integration.

The PSC will report to and be supervised by the Practice Lead and Senior Director (PDS) for EPG.

This position is not authorized to supervise any Federal employees.

3. Personal Services Contract

MCC is authorized to enter into a contract with an individual as a Personal Services Contractor (PSC) under the authority of Section 614(a) (8) of the Millennium Challenge Act of 2003.

A personal services contract is different from non-personal services Government contract, which establishes an independent contract relationship. Under a non-personal services contract, the contractor or employees of the contractor are subject to the technical direction but not the supervision of the MCC. As defined by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 37.104, a personal services contract is characterized by the employer-employee relationship it creates between the Government and the contractor personnel. Thus, the PSC is subject to the relatively continuous technical direction, supervision, and control of the MCC. PSCs may be assigned inherently governmental duties (see FAR 7.502). By law and by the contract’s terms, the PSC is subject to most of the laws, rules and regulations applicable to the direct hire employee such as MCC regulations, conflict of interest, under some circumstances MCC authorized employment security clearances and financial disclosure. However, under the MCC personal services contract authority, PSCs are not employees for purposes of laws administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The following elements apply to this contract:

  • Performance in Washington, D.C., US, MCC eligible countries, other US and foreign cities (as required for outreach purposes), and/or at the PSC’s home of record.
  • Principal tools and equipment furnished by the Government.
  • Services are applied directly to the integral effort of agencies or an organizational subpart in furtherance of assigned function or mission.
  • Comparable services, meeting comparable needs, are performed in the same or similar agencies using civil service personnel.
  • The need for the type of service provided can reasonably be expected to last beyond 1 year.
  • The inherent nature of the service, or the manner in which it is provided, reasonably requires directly or indirectly, Government direction or supervision of contractor employees in order to—
    1. Adequately protect the Government’s interest;
    2. Retain control of the function involved; or
  • Retain full personal responsibility for the function supported in a duly authorized Federal officer or employee.
4. Key Requirements

Awardee must satisfy the following key requirements:

  • S. citizenship.
  • Must be able to obtain and maintain a federal security clearance.
  • Performance in Washington, DC USA, MCC eligible countries, other US and foreign cities (as required for outreach purposes), and/or at the PSC’s home of record.
  • Domestic and international travel will be required.
  • Statement of Employment & Financial Interest (e.g., Office of Government Ethics “OGE Form-450” or similar statement) may be required.
  • Active System for Award Management (sam.gov) registration (this is a free, Government website) and be listed as sole-proprietor.
  • Designated and/or random drug testing required.
