About the Position

Dexis has been contracted by the USAID Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization (CPS) to provide institutional staffing support in the Center for Conflict and Violence Prevention (CPS/CVP).

CPS/CVP provides technical assistance to USAID Missions and other operating units, applied research and analysis, training and information dissemination, and partner engagement. The office links rigorous conflict and violence analysis to strategy development; activity design and implementation; and monitoring, evaluation, and learning.  

The Leadership and Learning Division (LLD) provides analysis, evidence and learning, technical leadership, and training to USAID Missions and other field-focused operating units. LLD’s two technical teams–Analysis and Evidence (A&E) and Integration and Education (I&E) provide a suite of user-friendly products and services to assist USAID staff to prevent armed conflict and violence and to promote peace and stability.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
