At Development Essentials, we think there are three steps to winning a USAID award: being responsive to the solicitation requirements, reaching the competitive range and responding to discussion range questions. Many organizations commitment enormous resources to developing a proposal but misunderstand discussion questions or what USAID is really looking for in the responses. This interactive webinar will go beyond the language of the FAR and explain what USAID is thinking when it prepares the discussion questions and what is the answer USAID is seeking with offeror responses.
Content and Objective
- How does USAID really determine the competitive range?
- What does discussion questions mean? What is the best way to answer discussion questions?
- What is USAID required to/may tell organizations during discussions?
- Can an organization make other changes to the proposal during discussions?
- How does USAID evaluate responses to discussion questions?
