This “And the winner is…” feature is part of ongoing Devex coverage and analysis of major donor contract awards that exceed $20 million. Each week, Devex will select a major contract award that we believe our community should know about and can learn from. Many of these prime awards can also lead to subcontract opportunities for both international and local partners. Please contact us directly to recommend contract awards Devex should cover in this series.

On Oct. 26, 2015, the U.S. Agency for International Development awarded a contract to U.S.-based private company Management & Training Corp. to provide technical assistance, capacity building and training to support Egypt’s workforce. The official title of the project and contract is “Workforce Improvement and Skill Enhancement,” or WISE.
