About the webinar

For organizations looking to diversify funding sources the US Agency for International Development, as the largest bilateral donor, presents as an attractive alternative.


What do organizations need to know in order to succeed as a prime contractor on USAID projects? Is subcontracting on a project always a necessary entry point?


On January 31, Konektid International and Devex will outline best practices in partnering with USAID. This one hour webinar will cover:



  • How to apply for and succeed on USAID prime contracts.
  • Best practices in subcontracting, and working with USAID as a small business.
  • How Devex helps advance a prime and subcontracting strategy.

We will also save time at the end for audience questions. You may submit questions ahead of the event to webinars@devex.com.


This event is open exclusively to Devex Executive Members and those with a Tender Tracking or Business Intelligence Account. If you are not currently a member, you will be prompted to upgrade during registration.

And both of these, if one would tell the truth, were foreordained unto the holy place, where greatest Peter’s follower hath his seat. While on this quest, for which thou giv’st him praise, he heard the things which of his victory the causes were, and of the Papal Robe. The Chosen Vessel went there afterward, to bring thence confirmation in the faith, through which one enters on salvation’s path. But why should I go there, or who concedes it? I ’m not Aeneas, nor yet Paul am I; me worthy of this, nor I nor others deem. If, therefore, I consent to come, I fear lest foolish be my coming; thou art wise, and canst much better judge than I can talk.”
