Credence Management Solutions is seeking an Audit and Information Analyst. See below for more information on this exciting opportunity and apply to join Credence today!
The Audit and Information Analyst will support the Bureau for Global Health, Office of Infectious Disease as a Credence Institutional Support Contractor (ISC).
The Audit and Information Analyst is responsible for supporting the Bureau for Global Health’s Office of Infectious Disease (GH/ID) relationships – in conjunction with Agency-level audit and information oversight professionals – with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Special Inspector General (SIG) and other staff and stakeholders regarding audits, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) document requests, and other inquiries of the GH/ID portfolio. The overwhelming proportion of GH/ID’s engagement with its audit and information oversight professionals is focused on the Office’s Global Health Security (GHS) program. The incumbent will serve as a principal liaison for the Office of Infectious Diseases and its GHS program audit, FOIA, and other stakeholder requests for documentation and information, including with the USAID’s office of Legislative and Public Affairs (LPA) response, which includes serving as the focal point for the analysis, tracking and follow-up of OIG, GAO and SIG audit results and other reports/reviews. The incumbent will focus on audit management through the proactive approach of risk management-with the idea being that the better the Office of Infectious Disease becomes at proactively managing risk, the greater the likelihood that audits will result in fewer audit findings and recommendations. The incumbent will be closely working with the GH/ID Director.
