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
