Lynne Cripe is the Chief Executive Officer at The KonTerra Group, a Humentum Industry Partner. They are committed to supporting organizations and individuals working in highly stressful environments within the international development and humanitarian sector, by providing them with staff care, resilience services, evaluations, and organizational learning services.
We caught up with Lynne to discuss how a Humentum In-house Training helped strengthen their internal systems and policies related to USAID and U.S. Government Contracting.
Tell us about the challenges KonTerra had to solve that made you look for outside help and reach out to Humentum?
Our portfolio currently includes a small number of U.S. government contracts with USAID and the State Department, and we wanted to grow that part of our portfolio. To do so, we knew that we needed to increase our knowledge and skills in contract management and compliance. We have done a lot of self-learning within KonTerra, but we thought that we’re at a point where some outside training would be useful.
