Business Forecast & Ask Procurement Executive Calls
February 17, 2016
I am pleased to share that Roy Plucknett has assumed the responsibilities of the Director of the Management Bureau's Office of Acquisition and Assistance (M/OAA), effective yesterday, February 16.
As the Director of M/OAA, Roy serves as the Agency's Senior Procurement Executive and Chief Acquisition Officer, leading a team of several hundred acquisition and assistance professionals serving USAID around the world. He is responsible for the management of the Agency's contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements, which totals approximately $16 billion annually.
Many of you may already know Roy as he has been with the Agency since 1993. Most recently, he served as the Deputy Mission Director in Afghanistan (2014-2015) and the Republic of Georgia (2012-2014). He has also served as a Contracting Officer in Washington, DC, Egypt, West Bank and Gaza, and Afghanistan. He is a member of USAID's Senior Foreign Service
I would like to say that it has been a pleasure to work with all of you and to serve as the Agency's Acting M/OAA Director for the last four months. I appreciate your input and support during this time. I look forward to continuing to work with you as I resume my role as the Deputy Director of Washington Operations.
Finally, I'd like to announce the dates and times of our Business Forecast and Ask the Procurement Executive conference calls. You can find more detailed information on both calls below.
Please join me in welcoming Roy to M/OAA. We look forward to continuing our great relationship with you.
As a way of introducing Roy Plucknett to the partner community, we will be hosting an Ask the Procurement Executive conference call. During the call, Roy will answer your questions about working with USAID.
