DFID contracts in more depth - in Washington DC

We have partnered with Humentum to run our popular intermediate-level DFID contracts course in Washington DC. Delivered by contracting specialist Haniya Dar-Tobin, this course builds on the learning you gained in our DFID contracts essentials course, to transform your organisation's performance when bidding for and delivering DFID contracts.

If you want to increase your win:loss ratio, maximise your negotiation skills and approach to partnering or make that step from sub-contractor to prime, this course will show you how.

Contracts provide new opportunities for suppliers to increase the reach and scale of their work and fulfil their strategic objectives. As the UK Department for International Development (DFID) seek to broaden its supplier base and private sector consultancy firms face particular challenges, more and more NGOs are bidding for complex contracts. However, this can come at a price, with heavy resource investments leading to unsuccessful bids or challenges during implementation.

Haniya sits on review boards evaluating contract applications for INGOs so you will benefit from her insight to increase the chances of success from your first application.

Who it is for

This course is suitable for NGO and private sector contractor staff who have attended our DFID contracts essentials course. It’s for those who are actively involved in selecting bids to apply for and writing the bid submission, or who have unsuccessfully bid for a contract in the past.

Unless you have previous experience, you must attend DFID contracts essentials before participating in this course.
