USAID Proposal Development: From RFA/RFP to Proposal

Training
from Humentum
Registration deadline: 24 Apr 2018 Training date: 25 Apr 2018 to 26 Apr 2018 More Information

OVERVIEW

This two-day workshop is designed to give you the practical tools, resources, and guidance you need to submit quality proposals to USAID. NGOs need team members who know how USAID works as an awarding agency, who can effectively manage the proposal process at the country office level, and who understand the processes and challenges of responding to RFAs and RFPs in the home office. This participatory style course, led by experienced practitioners, is consistently well rated by participants, whose comments have included, “Best training I have ever attended. Every minute was a gold mine of information, most of which was really new to me.”

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

In addition to individual participants, Humentum encourages teams of employees to attend this workshop together. Staff who will benefit include:

  • Finance staff who want to enhance their proposal writing or review skills
  • Program staff—at HQ and in the field—who work on new business development
  • Business development staff who are seeking to improve their teams’ processes and systems
  • Administrative staff who are interested in how they can support the proposal writing process

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

This workshop explores the end-to-end proposal development process for USAID funding opportunities. You will learn how to:

  • Analyze RFAs and RFPs from technical and cost perspectives
  • Submit proposals using the format of the USAID Request for Application/Request for Proposal (RFA/RFP)
  • Manage the proposal process at the field level, either as a direct responsibility or in partnership with headquarters staff
  • Conduct internal strategy meetings to facilitate the development of a strong technical solution, set calendars/timelines for managing the response, and identify appropriate team members for the proposal review process
