USAID Contract Management for NGOs: An Introduction

USAID Contract Management for NGOs: An Introduction

Use USAID contracts to avoid risks and prepare for success. 

This workshop is available as an Online English workshop, In-person English workshop, and In-person Spanish workshop. 


New! We are excited to announce the launch of the online version of USAID Contract Management for NGOs: An Introduction. You'll find the same engaging in-depth instruction on effective decision making for USAID contract implementation - now online!  This online workshop runs over five days using a combination of live webinars, videos and discussions. You are required to log-in at set times with a schedule for live webinars, each lasting approximately 90 minutes. Workshops are currently available in the following time zones: East Africa and US East Coast. 


Whether you are new to USAID contracts, or if you are a prime contractor partnering with NGOs that are new to contracts, this highly participatory workshop will provide you with the key insights you need for successful contract management. This includes, how to decide strategically whether or not to bid on contracts, how to conduct a thorough review of the Request for Proposal (RFP), and where your organization may be at risk. This entire workshop has been designed to stimulate critical thinking about, and effective decision making for, USAID contract implementation. 

Our expert facilitators share the relevant tools and knowledge you need to effectively administer USAID contracts as well as contracts issues by other US Federal agencies.

Alternative Workshops

If you are interested in USAID contract management and implementation, also check out our live online workshop: USAID Cost Reimbursement Contracts Practicum: Winning, Implementing, and Closing Out. 

USAID Cost Reimbursement Contracts Practicum: Winning, Implementing, and Closing Out runs over 32 weeks (28 sessions) with weekly one hour weekly online sessions. This workshop combines live online sessions, recorded sessions, discussion areas, and an online location with support materials to take you from A-Z of USAID Cost Reimbursement Contracts.

While both online workshops focus on USAID contracts, USAID Cost Reimbursement Contracts Practicum: Winning, Implementing, and Closing Out focuses on the fundamentals and deep dives into every detail of USAID Cost Type contracts. With USAID Contract Management for NGOs: An Introduction you will spend more time on the FAR (Parts 15, 31, 42, 44, 52), 2 CFR 200 Subpart E, AIDAR, and 22 CFR 228 over the course of one week.

We encourage you to read both workshop agendas located on the event pages to help decide which workshop is best for you.
