Whether you`re new to USAID funding or have years of experience in the program, this high-participation workshop shows you how to apply the rules to benefit your project, your collaborators, and your organization. Our specialized moderators will guide you step by step through the rules and show you how to interpret key terms in administrative requirements, cost principles and standard rules. You return to your project and find answers to questions about your price, from “Are laptops allowed” to “Does my international travel require prior authorization” to “How do I throw away a vehicle?” In addition to respecting donor compliance, you`ll also learn how to build strong working relationships with USAID and develop guidelines for successful management of your grant or cooperation agreement. (a) Religious organizations are permitted, on the same basis as any other organization, to participate in a USAID program in which they are otherwise entitled to participate. When selecting service providers, neither USAID nor companies that subcontract and manage USAID funds may discriminate against an organization because of the organization`s religious character or membership. As used in this section, the term “program” refers to publicly funded USAID grants and cooperation agreements, including sub-grants and sub-agreements. The term also includes grants awarded under contracts awarded by USAID for the management of support programs. As used in this section, the term “Fellow” includes a grant recipient or a signatory to a cooperation agreement, as well as sub-recipients of USAID assistance under grants, cooperation agreements, and contracts. Did you know that training costs are covered by your grant or cooperation agreement? 4. Yes – The participation proposed by USAID is considered an essential participation and, therefore, the appropriate implementation instrument is a cooperation agreement. Remember! The essential elements of participation allowed for any cooperation agreement are described in the award document.
