This five-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. This highly participatory course provides the knowledge and skills needed to effectively respond to the challenges in managing USAID awards and ensuring compliant project implementation.

While the focus of this training is USAID funding for grants and cooperative agreements, it also provides a good foundation for understanding funding from other US Government agencies.

Course Objectives

By the end of this course the participants will be able 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)

Who Should Attend

The training is meant for individual participants and teams of employees that are in the following USAID-funded project departments: 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; and Independent auditors (including representatives from certified public accounting firms who perform compliance or financial audits within the development sector).
