ICAP at Columbia University is an international, non-profit organization situated at Columbia University in New York. ICAP is Empowering Health Around the World and works in over 30 countries.
The New York City Pandemic Response Institute (PRI), situated within ICAP, is a landmark initiative designed to help prepare NYC for future public health threats – from infectious diseases to climate-related health emergencies – by advancing racial equity and elevating NYC as a model of public health preparedness across the globe.
PRI is bidding for a 12-month contract to develop a 5-year regional workplan for Region 2 (New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands) to establish a regional center for public health emergency preparedness and response (CPHEPR). If awarded, this contract will entail 1) establishing and coordinating a CPHEPR regional coordinating body (RCB) to develop a five-year work plan that details the evidence-based strategies and interventions (EBSI) that will need to be implemented to improve public health (PH) preparedness and response within targeted regional focus areas and priorities; and 2) establishing and coordinating a community of practice (CoP) to plan for and develop a regional data ecosystem model.
PRI is seeking a short-term (12-month), full time Project Coordinator (PC) to provide program implementation and project management support for this contract. Reporting to the Senior Project Manager (SPM), the Project Coordinator will assist with coordinating the day-to-day project operations and management of the Region 2 working groups, communities of practice and data ecosystem working groups. S/he will work closely with the Senior Project Manager to liaise with team leads and regional partners within health departments, health care facilities, and health care coalitions.
In liaison with the Senior Project Manager, the Project Coordinator will ensure effective project implementation, including preparing project work plans and scheduling start-up and routine meetings with project teams and stakeholders; preparing meeting agendas on time and according to project deadlines; monitoring and documenting activities according to project schedule, compiling information for project reports; and supporting the SPM to prepare project reports and coordinate submission of deliverables according to schedule.
The PC will support the SPM to coordinate project implementation activities for Task 1 (regional workplan development) and Task 3 (data ecosystem workstream), monitoring, evaluation and documentation processes; and work with the SPM to monitor project requirements, deadlines, and schedules.
