Securing funding and successfully executing US Government funded projects is more difficult than ever. Funding is shrinking and competition is more intense. Overseas execution is trickier with foreign governments monitoring even minor projects. Compliance is complex, and the penalties are much more severe. The auditors are as relentless as ever.

Brought to you by CUGH & SustainAbility Solutions, this two-day workshop focuses on some the most challenging aspects of winning and managing projects funded by Agencies of the US Government, with an emphasis on overseas execution.

The discussions and exercises will be led by two experts with more than 70 years of combined experience in winning, successfully managing, and auditing US Government development projects domestically and overseas.
