Based on the EP ‘Staffing for Results' exercises conducted in collaboration with OGAC for FY 2008, CDC is

proposing to increase staff within technical areas by adding six new positions. Specifically, the office is

proposing to recruit a HIV/AIDS Treatment Specialist (2846), a TB/HIV Specialist (2846), a Systems

Strengthening & Policy Officer (16764), a Senior Program Manager, Prevention Services Expert (2844), and

a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist (2848), to better support the implementation of EP activities. The

CDC will also fill the existing Chief of Party and Epidemiologist positions. In addition to personnel costs, this

activity includes equipment and services to support general office operating expenses. In line with CDC's

consolidation of IT services, the program will purchase services from the new ITSO Infrastructure Services

Support package in order to improve operational effectiveness and efficiency.
