Compliance and Risk

Compliance and Risk

Humentum helps individuals and organizations understand the regulations that govern their NGO’s funding, and enhance the ability of NGO staff to effectively manage their programs and maintain donor compliance.

For over 40 years we have been supporting organizations as they address the world’s most pressing social issues. We are widely recognized as the leader in US government assistance compliance training, and our training and support activities have helped many organizations build capacity, strengthen decision-making, develop more efficient systems, and identify effective solutions to important challenges.

Our flagship compliance workshop USAID Rules and Regulations: Grants & Cooperative Agreements is taught by an experienced team of senior practitioners, and has been completed by thousands of  practitioners across the world. Attendees consistently evaluate this course as “excellent,” “effective,” and “fun.” and we work across all stakeholders – project beneficiaries, partners and donors – to help them deliver a tangible upscale in performance and results. Read our learning promise.
