Project Overview

Development Alternative Inc.'s (DAI) Center for Development Excellence (CDE) contracted Making Cents to develop and refine curriculum content for its 'Doing Business with USAID' course, aimed at building the capacity of private sector firms and NGOs seeking to bid on and managing USAID awards. Our curriculum design specialists reviewed existing material from CDE Resources and USAID databases and provided recommendations on how to improve and adapt the content for local scenarios. The upgraded three-day course introduces participants to the USAID project life-cycle and includes three modules:

  1. Getting to Know the Agency,

  2. Developing a Proposal, and

  3. Project Implementation.
