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/Malawi participant evaluation comments

“The trainers know the subject matter and conveyed the delivered the sessions extremely well.”
“The work shop was very practical and hands on”
“Having us bring our own SOWs into the course was very helpful. Real world examples of what we are doing is much better than ‘Freedonia’ examples.”

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.”

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.”
