USAID/Sri Lanka participant comments

“Sometimes the contracting document-writing process can be confusing. This is an opportunity to get all your questions answered and get practical guidance on how to complete pre-award documents.”

USAID/Georgia participant evaluation comments

“I liked how interactive the class was and thought there was a good balance between lecture, discussion and hands-on activities…”
“I think it was very useful course. Barbara's professionalism, experience, and manner of delivery of the course material greatly contributed to its success.”

USAID/South Africa participant evaluation comments

“…the workshop reminded me of the important step in critically reviewing any written document - particularly SOWs. Also, it provided good insight into writing PWS with carefully worded evaluation criteria to challenge the potential offers to really develop an approach (and not just spit back what was in the solicitation).”
“Instructor was terrific and I would highly recommend her again.”

"In all my years at USAID, Barbara Brocker is one of the finest A&A professionals and trainers with whom I've worked. In fact, her 'Writing Workshop: A&A Pre-Award Documents' is the best course I've taken at USAID, bar none."
