For organizations looking to diversify funding sources, the U.S. Agency for International Development — as one of the world's largest bilateral donors awarding approximately $16 billion in funding annually in recent fiscal years — presents an attractive alternative.
What do organizations need to know in order to succeed as a prime contractor on USAID projects? Is subcontracting on a project always a necessary entry point? On Jan. 31, Konektid International and Devex outlined best practices in partnering with USAID.
This one hour webinar covered:
• How to apply for and succeed on USAID prime contracts.
• Three key things to keep in mind when applying for a USAID subcontracting opportunity.
• How small businesses can succeed on USAID contracts.
• How Devex helps advance a prime and subcontracting strategy.
The panelists also answered audience questions on air, including:
• Is it more common to subcontract with prime contractors on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis?
• How do you know when certain opportunities are open to non U.S. firms?
• Are there certain meetings that new potential prime contractors should attend?
• Is an organization ever too small to partner with USAID?
