USAID Rules & Regulations: Grants & Cooperative Agreements for Non-US NGOs

USAID Rules & Regulations: Grants & Cooperative Agreements for Non-US NGOs

Overview

This three-day workshop covers the many rules and regulations associated with USAID funding, through the lens of NGOs based outside of the US that receive US Government funding, either directly or as a sub-award. If you work for or partner with such an NGO, this highly participatory course provides the knowledge and skills you need to effectively respond to the challenges in managing your awards and ensuring compliant project implementation. Taught by an experienced team of senior practitioners, this workshop has been completed by thousands of development professionals around the world. Attendees consistently evaluate the learning they receive in this course as “excellent,” “effective,” and “fun.”
While the focus of this workshop is USAID funding for grants and cooperative agreements, it also provides a good foundation for understanding funding from other US Government agencies.
Note: This training is the first of three requirements for InsideNGO's Certificate in USAID Assistance Management.
 

Who Should Attend

In addition to individual participants, InsideNGO encourages teams of employees to attend this workshop together, to build and reinforce a culture of compliance across their organization. Those who will benefit include staff with responsibility in:

  • Finance, contracts, and grants
  • Programs and Administration
  • New business development
  • Human resources
  • Any experienced NGO employee who needs an update on the rules and regulations
  • Independent auditors (including representatives from certified public accounting firms who perform compliance or financial audits within the development sector)

What You Will Learn

This workshop equips employees of non-US NGOs with a detailed look at USAID grants and cooperative agreements and the necessary strategies for successful award and program management. You will learn how to:

  • Navigate and apply USAID rules and regulations to ensure compliant and successful program implementation
  • Build and manage collaborative relationships with key players related to your award
  • Explain the relationship between your organizational policies and the regulations
  • Identify when approvals, waivers, and extensions are required, as well as how to obtain them
  • Develop strategies for finding the answers to common and complex issues (e.g., determining allowable costs, correct procedures for purchasing equipment, property disposition, limits on budget revision, cost share, documentation requirements, avoiding common audit findings)
