DFID Contracts Essentials

DFID Contracts Essentials


The funding landscape is changing as grant funding declines and donors channel more and more funds through competitive tenders. 

The UK Department for International Development (DFID) are looking to expand their supplier base and DFID contracts are an attractive option for both US private sector contractors and INGOs. Offered by Humentum and Bond, and delivered by commercial contracting specialist Haniya Dar-Tobin, this course gives you the tools needed to make the most of this opportunity and maximize your chances of success. All Bond members will receive the Humentum member rate for this training. 

When you click the Register button above, please select that you are a Bond member once you get to the registration page.

Find out how your organization will need to adapt, understand the risks and obligations, and make sure you can distinguish yourself at bid stage. Haniya sits on review boards evaluating commercial contract applications for INGOs so you will benefit from her insight to increase the chances of success from your first application.
