Hear from our happy course attendees

What course attendees are saying about the content of the course…


Washington, DC July 2013
I will share with the staff the program and the administrated staff of ACID/VOCA in Colombia, but mainly with grantees that implement our program
Gabriela Salazar, ACDI/VOCA, Colombia

What I have found more useful about this course was learning a lot of the terminology, as well as what restrictions apply to DOs and AORs at USAID, so we can better understand what our rights are as implementing partners of USAID grants and cooperative agreements
Nilanka Seneviratne, Partners for Democratic Change

So a lot of what we are learning we are going to take home and use it in a day to day basis. The instructors are very good at identifying recurring issues that I think many people are dealing with
Jason Kajer, FHI 360

The information that has been shared by the trainers today, has given us the confidence to move forward to believe that we will be valuable and great partners for USAID. The information is key, is vital to success. It is vital to your partnership, is vital to diversity and funding, and I am excited about being part of it today. And I know great things lie ahead
Alexis Felder, The Joseph Assignment Global Initiative

It is extremely useful for me to understand what the rules and regulations as well as the preferences of USAID are, so then when I am actually writing the proposal grant, I can make sure to integrate those aspects into the proposal
Pauley Tedoff, The Trust for the Americas/Organization of American States

Who course attendees are saying should be recommended to take the course…


Islamabad, Pakistan August 2013

I am making a recommendation to our senior leadership that all of the directors of our different teams within the organization, actually take this training so they can provide better coaching and mentorship to the people on their teams who interact on a daily basis with USAID
Nilanka Seneviratne, Partners for Democratic Change

I think the course is very good for everyone who is doing program management, or doing contracting work in overseeing the management of cooperative agreements
Jason Kajer, FHI 360

I regret that I don’t have my CFO and I don’t have other programing people here. But I recommend top-level decision makers in every organization seeking to have a partnership with USAID be a part of this training
Alexis Felder, The Joseph Assignment Global Initiative

So certainly the logistics or financial manager of the organization that is working directly on the grant is really a key person to participate in this kind of very detail oriented and thorough training
Pauley Tedoff, The Trust for the Americas/Organization of American States
