    22-180 USAID Legal Advisor

    Supervisory Relationship

    The Senior RLO will, in collaboration with the Legal Advisor, establish annual work objectives and performance measures; review work outputs and accomplishments to ensure compliance with Agency policies and implementation of best practices; provide regular feedback throughout the Performance Evaluation Period; and provide annual performance evaluations. As the Legal Advisor will work with a high degree of independence, the Legal Advisor is expected to establish his/her own priorities, adhere to and meet established deadlines, and perform responsibilities and duties with minimal guidance and limited follow‑up. Frequent in-country travel should be considered a requirement. The Legal Advisor may also receive direct assignments from other RLOs at USAID/Kenya and East Africa, and the Mission Director/Deputy Mission Director. In the absence or preoccupation of the Senior RLO, one of the Junior RLOs will be the direct supervisor. In the absence of all RLOs in the RLO, Deputy Mission Director will be the direct supervisor.

    Supervisory Controls

    Supervision of other staff, including RLO staff, is not contemplated.
