Overview

This two-day workshop provides participants with best practices, useful tools, and guidance to manage subawards. With many NGOs implementing USAID-funded projects with a subaward component, development practitioners working on these projects must understand the nuances in roles and responsibilities while complying with donor rules and regulations and achieving program objectives. If you are responsible for implementing, managing, and monitoring subawards, this participatory-style workshop will support you as you address the day-to-day challenges in administering such assistance.  

Who Should Attend

Designed to benefit staff that are responsible for managing and monitoring subawards, the topics covered are especially useful for staff with responsibility in:
•    Programs
•    Finance, grants, and contracts
•    Compliance

What You Will Learn

The workshop teaches participants to select and monitor subawardees in a manner that minimizes risk while optimizing program effectiveness. You will learn how to:

  • Utilize effective approaches to assessing and selecting partners
  • Choose the appropriate funding mechanism
  • Implement productive partner engagement strategies
  • Monitor program outputs, progress, and performance
  • Manage subaward management risks specific to USAID funding
