This workshop will incorporate the updated USAID regulations, as per the rule changes effective December 26, 2014.
The risks involved in procurement execution make this area a primary focus of audits and compliance reviews. Yet organizations struggle to develop and implement the right mix of operating procedures, systems, controls, and trainings that would ensure effective and compliant procurement.
This workshop will incorporate the updated US Government regulations, as per the rule changes effective December 26, 2014.
Consistent and effective financial management is the key to receiving funding from the US Government – and also to reducing audit findings.
Learn how to build an appropriate Cost Proposal and understand best practices on maximizing Cost Proposal negotiations with the US Government. Topics will include the Budget and the Budget Narrative, both essential elements in winning your next US Federal Grant or Cooperative Agreement. This one-day course includes practice with the fundamentals of building a budget, formatting a budget according to the Federal Standard Form 424, and communicating and justifying the Cost Proposal to the USG Donor.
Putting together winning proposals for USAID in a competitive environment can be a complex task with very tight time frames. In addition to strong strategic program design skills, it requires internal planning, coordination and the involvement of all departments from finance to human resources to program in order to submit a quality product. Many international relief and development organizations rely on teams of staff that are not dedicated full-time to proposal writing but who need to come together quickly to meet a submission deadline.
Organizations traditionally receiving grants and cooperative agreements (assistance) from U.S. Government agencies sometimes consider expanding into the world of contracts (acquisition) as a prime or sub-contractor. The very premise of a contract in which the U.S. Government is the buyer (acquisition) entails a stricter relationship than a grantee would usually experience in an assistance environment. The risks of non-compliance are significant and the management involvement of the U.S.
